I am guilty of not mustering up the courage to see 'A Beautiful Mind' before tonight. I just saw it; cried through most of the ending. The movie is about the life of Prof. John Nash, his struggles through schizophrenia, and his remarkable mind. While not everything in the movie is real, it truly shows how Prof. Nash, a brilliant mathematician and economist, fought with his own mind every single day for thirty years, to formulate some of the most promising and useful concepts of game theory. Here is one honest and succinct essay on Prof. John Nash, written by a Princeton U. student, where Prof. Nash teaches even today.
Quote for the day: "If you're going to develop exceptional ideas it requires a type of thinking that is not simply practical thinking." - Prof. John Nash
