"Called 'the most remarkable mathematician of the second half of the century, ' Nash suffered a devastating breakdown at the age of thirty. He suddenly claimed that aliens were sending him messages, became obsessed with secret numbers and saw conspiracies all around him. Diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia, Nash spent a decade in and out of mental hospitals, surviving with the support of his wife and former colleagues. During that time, a mathematical proof he'd written at the age of twenty became a foundation of modern economics. Sometime in the 1980s, he gradually began to recover. In 1994, Nash capped his remarkable return from madness by winning the Nobel Prize"--Container.

Synopsis: When John Nash won the Nobel prize in economics in 1994, many people were surprised to learn that he was alive and well. Since then, Sylvia Nasar's celebrated biography A Beautiful Mind, the basis of a new major motion picture, has revealed the man. The Essential John Nash reveals his work-in his own words. his book presents, for the first time, the full range of Nash's diverse contributions not only to game theory, for which he received the Nobel, but to pure mathematics-from Riemannian geometry and partial differential equations-in which he commands even greater acclaim among academics. Included are nine of Nash's most influential papers, most of them written over the decade beginning in 1949. From 1959 until his astonishing remission three decades later, the man behind the concepts "Nash equilibrium" and "Nash bargaining"-concepts that today pervade not only economics but nuclear strategy and contract talks in major league sports-had lived in the shadow of a condition diagnosed as paranoid schizophrenia. In the introduction to this book, Nasar recounts how Nash had, by the age of thirty, gone from being a wunderkind at Princeton and a rising mathematical star at MIT to the depths of mental illness. In his preface, Harold Kuhn offers personal insights on his longtime friend and colleague; and in introductions to several of Nash's papers, he provides scholarly context. In an afterword, Nash describes his current work, and he discusses an error in one of his papers. A photo essay chronicles Nash's career from his student days in Princeton to the present. Also included are Nash's Nobel citation and autobiography. The Essential John Nash makes it plain why one of Nash's colleagues termed his style of intellectual inquiry as "like lightning striking." All those inspired by Nash's dazzling ideas will welcome this unprecedented opportunity to trace these ideas back to the exceptional mind they came from.

Filmed at Princeton's renowned Institute for Advanced Study, National Public Radio's Ira Flatow introduces viewers to some of today's greatest minds through intimate, cross-disciplinary conversations that spotlight science, mathematics, history, linguistics, art, and music. This program brings together six icons of intellect--mathematician John Nash, mathematical biologist Martin Nowak, mathematician Enrico Bombieri, mathematical physicist Freeman Dyson, pianist Robert Taub, and cultural anthropologist Clifford Geertz--who talk about milestones on their roads to success. The conversation ranges far and wide, covering topics such as game theory, the evolution and cultural adaptation of language, the Riemann hypothesis, genetic engineering, nuclear-powered spacecraft, the ethnography of Southeast Asia and North Africa, Beethoven's piano sonatas, and even the movie "A Beautiful Mind."

A simple three-person poker game by John F Nash ( Book )
1 edition published in 1950 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
"A three person zero-sum poker game is considered, in which one card is dealt to each player. The deck contains only two kinds of cards, high and low, and the eight possible deals are equally likely. There is an ante #? and a fixed size of bet #? If any player bets, the other two have an opportunity to call. No raises are permitted. Equilibrium points are obtained for all possible values of #? for #a \leq b #? there is a unique equilibrium point; for #a #? the situation is more complicated. The method of solution is sketched."
