He went to the Carnegie Mellon University where he changed his subject to Mathematics. For better job prospects and effective resume Nash started taking Economics classes as well at the Institute. In 1963, John Nash self volunteered to Carrier Mental Institute, where for next five months he underwent a series of painful shock treatment and insulin coma therapy. His illness is managed by medication and regular visits from members of his treatment team. After a couple of years Johnny had a sister when Martha was born.

Nash felt tremendous pressure on his shoulders as he now had to fit in the shoes of man of the house. The McCarty episode often gave him nightmares that communists were sprawling through the country, targeting honest civilians to join their evil cause. By the age of 13, Nash had read 'Men of Mathematics' written by E. His friends, who knew Nash as an eccentric creature, witnessed a whole new deal of insanity. Soon, however, his growing interest in mathematics had him take courses on tensor calculus and relativity.

The outstanding results which Nash had obtained in the course of a few years put him into contention for a 1958 but since his work on parabolic and elliptic equations was still unpublished when the Committee made their decisions he did not make it. For his contribution in the field of Mathematics, Nash was invited to Paris but this time Alicia did not accompany him. Treading deep inside the dark, dingy tunnel the boys lost their way out. However, Nash was uncertain about his choice and wondered how would he earn his living as a full time mathematician? On 28th May, just a week before Nash was released from the hospital, Alicia gave birth to a baby boy. Nash, on his way to success, was inducing pain to others; apparently it was time to endure some. In 1952 Nash published Real Algebraic Manifolds in the Annals of Mathematics.

Alicia knew that Nash desperately needed help now. However, the outbreak of Korean War made Nash uncomfortable to an extent of paranoia. The university gave Nash an ideal platform to express his emotion and intellect. He had ideas and was very sure they were important. A 1998 book told his story and was the basis of the 2001 movie that starred Russell Crowe as Nash and Jennifer Connelly as Alicia.

The game tested the mettle of students' abilities under a nerve racking situation. She had been born in El Salvador but came at an early age to the U. With his new economic discovery, Nash approached Neumann who rejected his ideas on the grounds of practicality. The most important result in this paper is that two real algebraic manifolds are equivalent if and only if they are analytically homeomorphic. His pursuit of fame and recognition fetched him a wild card entry in Harvard's 'Putnam Math Competition'.

He was very adolescent, always with the boys. Always up to something, 15 year old Nash made friends with equally reckless students Donald Raymond and Hermen Kirchner from his school. State police revealed that it appeared neither passenger was wearing a at the time of the crash. As a marker for the great things to come, he completed an important work on bargaining when he was at Carnegie. His personal life started to take a turn and he remarried Alicia in 2001.

After a series of prolonged misery Nash had become very humble; all his arrogance and ego was gone. Due to the stress of dealing with his illness, Nash and de LardÃ© divorced in 1963. After 1970, his condition slowly improved, allowing him to return to academic work by the mid-1980s. He could have easily excelled at athletics but he chose brain power over physical attributes. A similar form of this solution had been used by a mathematician and economist, Antoine Augustin Cournot in his work on oligopoly a form of market or industry earlier in 1838. Nash quickly aspired to great things in mathematics. Getting admission to Princeton was a magnanimous achievement for John Nash, as every single student was handpicked by the university; they were America's top bright students, elite of the elites.

Personal Life, Marriage and on Schizophrenia In mid 50s, Nash suffered arrest on moral charge of gay sexual involvement. Although the charges were dropped, he was stripped of his top-secret and fired from , where he had worked as a consultant. He also received a scholarship at the Princeton University for doctoral in mathematics which he completed in 1950. Lacking prudish qualities like other professors, Nash mixed with fellow students in their soirees and celebration. I think maybe they would have been alive if I had been with them. We are the third planet in our solar system which we call home; close enough to the Sun for sustaining life on earth and far enough to be shielded from intolerable heat and life-threatening radiations. In in 1954, while in his 20s, Nash was arrested for in a sting operation targeting homosexual men.

He was baptized in the. The movie was based on an unauthorized biography by Sylvia Nasar, who wrote that Nash's contemporaries found him 'immensely strange' and 'slightly cold, a bit superior, somewhat secretive. When offered him the most prestigious Fellowship that Princeton had, Nash made his decision to study there. From 1952 Nash had taught at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology but his teaching was unusual and unpopular with students and his examining methods were highly unorthodox. Services for the two are expected to be private, with a public memorial to come at a later date.
