Did you know John Nash Jr. died?
And that he was the inspiration behind the movie “A Beautiful Mind”?
What did you say? You got to know it over and over again from virtually all your Facebook friends who thought they should post the same news?
Odd! Do we have the same Facebook friends?
Yeah, he was on his way back from the airport, after receiving the Abel Prize in Norway, for his work on non-linear PDEs (not game theory, though, for which he received the Nobel in 1994) this past Tuesday, to his home in Princeton Junction when this occurred around Exit 8A of NJTP.
You should do a bar graph comparing the posts for his death versus the other recent deaths. My friends apparently didn’t know John Nash
This is truly a great loss for the scientific community. My heart and prayers go out to his family.
