Hi:

Welcome to Linux Questions!

When you unpacked the tar.gz file it should of came with a "Read Me" file or a "Install" file.
The instructions in that file should help you as to what to type into your terminal to install boost-

YUM is the utility to use with Fedora to install, update and upgrade your system.

Here's a few article's:

For boost I think you need boost-devel

Looking at the boost-devel package, it requires the boost package of the same version. Here is what the boost-devel package requires:

If this doesn't help try running:

yum install boost

Are you sure it must be version 1.53 ? ?
The upcoming Fedora 19 has boost-1.50.0 .

And : # yum install boost-devel
... will provide version 1.48 on Fedora 18.
