About this Prize

The prize was established in 1967 in honor of Professor George David Birkhoff, with an initial endowment contributed by the Birkhoff family and subsequent additions by others. The American Mathematical Society (AMS) and the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) award the Birkhoff Prize jointly.

The Birkhoff Prize is awarded for an outstanding contribution to applied mathematics in the highest and broadest sense.
