Who is John Nash?
The 1994 prizewinner in Economic Sciences, John Nash won his prize for his work on game theory. The “Nash equilibrium” concept from economics and game theory is well-known to those who have studied game theory, even as it relates to Jeopardy!
His struggles with mental illness and his recovery led to Sylvia Nasar’s biography, A Beautiful Mind, which was adapted into the early-’00s Best Picture Oscar winner, with Russell Crowe portraying Nash.
