John Forbes Nash Jr. was born June 13, 1928 in Bluefield, West Virginia. Mr. Nash Jr. is an American mathematician who won the 1994 Nobel Prize for his works in the late 1980’s on game theory. Game theory is the study of strategic decision making or more formally known as the mathematical models of conflict and cooperation between intelligent and rational decision makers. Game theory is mainly used in economics, political science, and psychology, as well as logic and biology. Mr. Nash Jr. has also contributed numerous publications involving differential geometry, and partial differential equation (PDE). Differential geometry is a mathematical discipline that uses differential calculus and integral calculus, linear algebra and multi linear algebra to study geometry problems. Partial differential equation is a differential equation that contains unknown multivariable functions and their partial derivatives. These are used to formulate problems involving functions of several variables. Mr. Nash Jr. used all of these skills and is known for developing the Nash embedding theorem. The Nash embedding theorem stated that every Riemannian manifold ( a real smooth manifold equipped with an inner product on each tangent space that varies smoothly from point to point) can be isometrically embedded into some Euclidean space ( a three dimensional space of Euclidean geometry, distinguishes these spaces from the curved spaces of Non-Euclidean geometry). An example used on Wikipedia is the bending of a piece of paper with out stretching or tearing the paper gives it an isometric embedding of the page into Euclidean space because curves drawn on the page retain the same arclenth however the page is bent. John Nash Jr. also made significant contributions tp parabolic partial differential equations and to singularity theory. While...

...John Forbes NashJr. (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....

...This movie was based on the life of JohnNash 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...

...John Forbes Nash, Jr. (born June 13, 1928) is an American mathematician whose works in game theory, differential geometry, and partial differential equations have provided insight into the forces that govern chance and events inside complex systems in daily life. His theories are used in market economics, computing, evolutionary biology, artificial intelligence, accounting, politics and military theory. Serving as a Senior Research Mathematician at...

...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...

...JohnNash Biography
JohnNash (June 13, 1928 – present) is a brilliant mathematician, specializing in economics. He was born n Westfield, West Virginia, into a family of three, he, his father – an electrical engineer, and his mother – a school teacher who pushed him to do many great things that led to his superb education and extraordinary mind. As a child, he had a quiet and withdrawn personality, but was very intelligent. He started...

...While watching John Nash’s interview, I found it interesting how someone with schizophrenia can also be a Nobel Prize winner for his theory, although took him forty years. It is also amazing that with such a big disability, one can be successful in other areas and do marvelous things. Watching this interview made me think back to the video of the young man who has a really genius math ability, but has a mental disability; being able to be gifted in one area but couldn’t even...
