This movie was based on the life of John Nash a mathematician and professor of Princeton University. Who also won a Nobel Prize in Economics in 1994. He also suffered from Paranoid Schizophrenia,through his anguish, we gain knowledge of a life with mental illness and how affects every component of his life and those close to himThe movie starts with his early years at Princeton University but he is not very popular around his peers, except for his roommate and friend "Charles". In the part where he is in the Pentagon you can start seeing that he is imagining things, he sees a man that no one else sees so you can see that gradually he is starting to get worse and once he got marry and once his was got pregnant , he developed it at once. His illusion was that he was working for the CIA. It was sad to see him going through the treatments of Electroconvulsive Therapy and to see his wife also suffer to see her husband become a ghost of what he used to be, I can relate to one scene where he does not take his medication, I can understand why. In the movie they don't show much of his therapy but from what I know is very painful for the patient and the family. I think as a wife I would feel also guilty and I think I would also think of divorcing just like Alicia his wife expressed to one of John's friends. The part where he becomes really mentally sick is in the scene where he is wondering and fighting in the hallways and around the campus of the university , this is the scene where you can see him fully insane and people mock him and he does not care because in his mind he sees different people and hear different things, I think this is the part where I really got interested in the movie, how can someone lose all that you were and become the "Joke" of people, I think for John Nash that was really hurtful. You can see him that he had neglected his appearance, he looked dirty and scary, It must be hard to live in a world that only you see and hear. But somehow he...

...In the short span of ten years, John Forbes Nash, Jr. published an astounding fourteen papers relating to such diverse mathematical subjects as game theory, differential equations, parabolic equations, and fluid dynamics. Although Nash is best known for his works in game theory, for which he received the Nobel Prize in economics in 1994, his other mathematical works do deserve investigation. Many argue however, that Nash's theories relating to...

...John Forbes Nash Jr. (born June 13, 1928) is a mathematician who worked in game theory and differential geometry. He shared the 1994 Nobel Prize for economics with two other game theorists, Reinhard Selten and John Harsanyi.
After a promising start to his mathematical career, Nash began to suffer from schizophrenia around his 30th year, an illness from which he has only recovered some 25 years later.

...A beautiful mind is a great way to describe JohnNash because he was a brilliant person who suffered and fought through Schizophrenia. Nash was born on June 13, 1928, in Bluefield, West Virginia. His father was an electrical engineer for the Appalachian Electric Power Company. His mother, name was Virginia Martin and she had been a schoolteacher before she married.

... the Nash equilibrium is a solution concept of a non-cooperative game involving two or more players, in which each player is assumed to know the equilibrium strategies of the other players, and no player has anything to gain by changing only their own strategy unilaterally. If each player has chosen a strategy and no player can benefit by changing strategies while the other players keep theirs unchanged, then the current set of strategy choices and the corresponding payoffs...

...Nash Equilibrium and Dominant Strategies
Nash Equilibrium is a term used in game theory to describe an equilibrium where each player's strategy is optimal given the strategies of all other players. A Nash Equilibrium exists when there is no unilateral profitable deviation from any of the players involved. In other words, no player in the game would take a different action as long as every other player remains the same. Nash Equilibria...

...Security Dilemma the Collective Action Problem and the Nash Equilibrium.
Criticism of the United Nations highlight the lack of power it has and its reliance on superpowers for legitimacy. The use by states of the UN is conditional on whether it serves state self-interest and whether the value of participating outweighs the cost (Abbott and Snidal 2005: 27). This brings into question why states would allow the UN to impose International laws and Norms that erode state...
