This prize was established in 1967 in honor of Professor Norbert Wiener and was endowed by a fund from the Department of Mathematics of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The endowment was further supplemented by a generous donor.

Since 2004, the US$5,000 prize has been awarded every three years.The American Mathematical Society and the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics award this prize jointly; the recipient must be a member of one of these societies.

The 2019 Norbert Wiener Prize in Applied Mathematics was awarded to **Marsha Berger** for her fundamental contributions to adaptive mesh refinement (AMR) and to Cartesian mesh techniques for automating the simulation of compressible flows in complex geometry and to Professor **Arkadi Nemirovski** for his fundamental contributions to high-dimensional optimization and for his discovery of key phenomena in the theory of signal estimation and recovery.
