A Beautiful Mind
Transcript of A Beautiful Mind
A Beautiful Mind is a 2001 American biographical drama film based on the life of John Nash, a Nobel Laureate in Economics.
John Nash had many up and down sides to being a genius. An upside that really stood out from the film was the ability to find the solution to a problem that has not yet even been created, which is what John Nash would do. Most equations that we see today have been created by geniuses like John Nash who were able to come up with an answer before the question, and then create the steps for it.
• Born on June 13, 1928
• American mathematician
• His theories are used in market economics, computing, evolutionary biology, artificial intelligence, accounting, politics and military theory.
• Mainly known for the Nash equilibrium and the Nash embedding theorem
• Awarded in 1978 for the John Von Nevman theory price and in 1994 for the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences.
The Nash Equilibrium
In game theory, the Nash equilibrium is a solution concept of a non-cooperative game involving two or more players, in which each player is assumed to know the equilibrium strategies of the other players, and no player has anything to gain by changing only their own strategy

Question # 4
The first impression of John Nash is that he seems awkward too scared to be around anyone and going into an unknown world that he hasn't explored yet. It seemed that his attitude towards his own intellect and the intellect of others is very open minded since its whats going to get him to "cure" his severe delusions.
John Nash's under developed social skills are more illustrated in the beginning and middle of the film when he is attending Princeton university. He describes himself as different and strange he also says that others don't like him.
John Nash provides a formula to help predict the on comings on economic theory. He believed that mathematics was involved in everything and therefore every problem had a mathematical solution.
The 911 attack would have been a perfect example where Nash should have calculated the difference in the gap between each airplane that was about to crash. Not only would his intelligence have help but he would have also solved the locations in which the planes were coming from.
