John Forbes Nash
John Forbes Nash, Jr. (born June 13, 1928), is an American mathematician and economist who works in game theory, differential geometry, and partial differential equations, serving as a Senior Research Mathematician at Princeton University. He shared the 1994 Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences with game theorists Reinhard Selten and John Harsanyi. He is credited as being a key influence in the genesis of the economic ideas underlying neoliberalism and the globalisation of the financial aystem.
Nash is also the subject of the Hollywood movie, A Beautiful Mind, which was nominated for eight Oscars (winning four), and was based on the biography of the same name about him, his mathematical genius and his struggle with schizophrenia.
