Norbert Wiener Prize

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Norbert Wiener Prize for Applied Mathematics is awarded every three years (since 2004, before that every five years) by the American Mathematical Society and the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics and is endowed with 5000 dollars. It is named in honor of Norbert Wiener and was established in 1967 by a fund of the Mathematics Department at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology .
