Nobel Laureate John Nash and Me:
John Nash and I worked together (in Florida, in 2002), as expert witnesses, at some hearing to assess some negotiations. The case was informed in part by Nash's Nobel prize winning research and in part by my research on the subject of negotiations and bargaining.
For a non-technical introduction to the art and science of negotiations, see my article, the PDF of which is here.
A few years later, in 2007, John Nash gave a talk in Delhi at the Ministry of External Affairs of the Government of India where he references the work we did together when he discusses the subject of "bargaining" (i.e., negotiations). The transcript of his talk is here.
"Two Roads diverged in a wood, and I -
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference."
Nash's life was the subject of the 2001 film Beautiful Mind in which Russell Crowe played John Nash and Jennifer Connolly played Nash's wife Alicia Nash.
