ﭏ Types of text ᅳ A Beautiful Mind (English Edition)  ᐽ Kindle Ebook By Sylvia Nasar ᕉ ﭏ Types of text ᅳ A Beautiful Mind (English Edition) ᐽ Kindle Ebook By Sylvia Nasar ᕉ Stories of famously eccentric Princetonians abound such as that of chemist Hubert Alyea, the model for The Absent Minded Professor, or Ralph Nader, said to have had his own key to the library as an undergraduate Or the Phantom of Fine Hall, a figure many students had seen shuffling around the corridors of the math and physics building wearing purple sneakers and writing numerology treatises on the blackboards The Phantom was John Nash, one of the most brilliant mathematicians of his generation, who had spiraled into schizophrenia in the 1950s His most important work had been in game theory, which by the 1980s was underpinning a large part of economics When the Nobel Prize committee began debating a prize for game theory, Nash s name inevitably came up only to be dismissed, since the prize clearly could not go to a madman But in 1994 Nash, in remission from schizophrenia, shared the Nobel Prize in economics for work done some 45 years previously.Economist and journalist Sylvia Nasar has written a biography of Nash that looks at all sides of his life She gives an intelligent, understandable exposition of his mathematical ideas and a picture of schizophrenia that is evocative but decidedly unromantic Her story of the machinations behind Nash s Nobel is fascinating and one of very few such accounts available in print the CIA could learn a thing or two from the Nobel committees This highly recommended book is indeed a story about the mystery of the human mind, in three acts genius, madness, reawakening Mary Ellen CurtinNasar has written a notable biography of mathematical genius John Forbes Nash b 1928 , a founder of game theory, a RAND Cold War strategist and winner of a 1994 Nobel Prize in economics She charts his plunge into paranoid schizophrenia beginning at age 30 and his spontaneous recovery in the early 1990s after decades of torment He attributes his remission to will power he stopped taking antipsychotic drugs in 1970 but underwent a half dozen involuntary hospitalizations Born in West Virginia, the flamboyant mathematical wizard rubbed elbows at Princeton and MIT with Einstein, John von Neumann and Norbert Wiener He compartmentalized his secret personal life, shows Nasar, hiding his homosexual affairs with colleagues from his mistress, a nurse who bore him a son out of wedlock, while he also courted Alicia Larde, an MIT physics student whom he married in 1957 Their son, John, born in 1959, became a mathematician and suffers from episodic schizophrenia Alicia divorced Nash in 1963, but they began living together again as a couple around 1970 Today Nash, whose mathematical contributions span cosmology, geometry, computer architecture and international trade, devotes himself to caring for his son Nasar, an economics correspondent for the New York Times, is equally adept at probing the puzzle of schizophrenia and giving a nontechnical context for Nash s mathematical and scientific ideas Copyright 1998 Reed Business Information, Inc.
