and “genius” for his excellence.

The Brightest Period of Mr. Nash

In 1948, Mr. Nash entered the doctoral program at Princeton where there were many prominent mathematician and scientists, including John von Neumann.

As Mr. Nash lacked in sociality, other students thought him odd. But the game Mr. Nash invented was widely welcomed .Students called that game “Nash”or “John.”

Mr. Nash liked studying other mathematicians’ unsolved problems. In the second year at Princeton, he picked a problem for his thesis that had eluded von Neumann. In fact, von Neumann and an economist wrote a book, “The Theory of Games and Economic Behavior”, in which game theory was first introduced. In the book, von Neumann stated that one side’s gain was the other’s loss. While Mr. Nash’s later study on game theory furthered von Neumann’s achievement. He showed mutual gain was also possible. Mr. Nash’s discovery turned the elusive game theory into a useful tool when dealing with economic problems. His theory also finally led him to the Nobel Prize.

After Mr. Nash got his doctorate at the age of 22, he started teaching. Still he kept much passion for complex math problem. Once an old professor challenged him with a notorious problem that was thought insoluble. Surprisingly, Mr. Nash worked it out with a new invented
