A 'Nobel Prize' winner who was immortalized by the critically-acclaimed movie, 'A Beautiful Mind', Professor John Nash developed an interest in mathematics from the time he was in high school. Having graduated from esteemed educational establishments like the 'Carnegie Institute of Technology' and the 'Princeton University', he revolutionised the field of equilibrium theory. He is famous for his works on 'Game Theory', partial differential equations, and algebraic geometry. Not only is this mathematician's work important in his field of study, but is also used in a wide range of subjects like artificial intelligence, politics, economics, accounting, and even biology. Application of his 'Game Theory' is essential for arriving at decisions that benefit an organization and its people. Since the establishment of the validity of this field of study, eleven game theorists have been awarded the 'Nobel Prize'. Though glorified by his biographer, Sylvia Nasar, and Hollywood, his life has been controversial, where he has been charged with indecent conduct, and has allegedly not been a very able husband and father. However, it is this talented mathematician’s fight against schizophrenia and the stigma associated with the condition, which has made him the epitome of brilliance according to many, across the world
