SIAM George Pólya Prize

The George Pólya Prize


The Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics awards the George Pólya Prize every two years, alternately in two categories:
  1. for a notable application of combinatorial theory;

  2. for a notable contribution in another area of interest to George Pólya such as approximation theory, complex analysis, number theory, orthogonal polynomials, probability theory, or mathematical discovery and learning.
