Norbert Wiener Prize in Applied Mathematics

The Norbert Wiener Prize for Applied Mathematics is every three years (since 2004, before the five years) of the American Mathematical Society and the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics awarded and is worth $ 5,000. He is named in honor of Norbert Wiener and donated in 1967.
