Norbert Wiener Award in Mathematics,
|The Norbert Wiener Award in Mathematics is given on those rare occasions when an unusually young student exhibits such prodigious strength in mathematics as to recall the highly unusual talents of the child prodigy Norbert Wiener, LA1909, who went on to become one of the giants of twentieth-century mathematics. Aside from the vast legacy within mathematics he left his mark on popular culture by founding the discipline and coining the term "cybernetics," which has spawned today's notions of cyberspace, and others.|
