Highest honor in US.

Carl de Boor, a mathematician and computer scientist, has won the 2003 National Medal of Science, the most prestigious science award in the country.

Administered by the National Science Foundation, the National Medal of Science has since 1959 recognized pioneers in a range of scientific fields. A committee of scientists and engineers appointed by the president of the United States annually evaluates the award nominees.

A professor emeritus of computer sciences and mathematics, de Boor will receive his medal at a White House ceremony on March 14.
