What are some examples of math in the movie, A Beautiful Mind?

The Math in ‚A Beautiful Mind‘

In Ron Howard’s new film, „A Beautiful Mind,“ Russell Crowe plays the tormented math genius, John Nash. Among other things, Nash falls in love, mesmerizes federal code breakers, makes some imaginary friends, and suffers through brutal schizophrenia-treating shock therapy. But, oddly, he does very little math.
It’s a film about a revolutionary mathematician; but film-goers will be hard pressed to describe the revolution after the credits roll. And that’s unfortunate. Nash and his 1950 Princeton doctorate dissertation transformed game theory from a marginally useful subset of mathematics and economics into one of the most influential fields used in understanding decision-making today. Economists, political analysts, and business leaders now use game theory to describe and influence everything from Wal-Mart’s post-holiday sales to India and Pakistan’s armed standoff.
Game theorists also designed the Clinton-era $7 billion auction of this country’s broadcast spectrum. Another game theorist largely created the current system that medical school students use to get placement in hospitals.
Simply put, game theory is the study of a conflict situation with more than one participant or player. The players could be poker enthusiasts, job applicants, or hikers racing each other to a summit. When the Globe sets its price, it’s playing a game with the Herald, the Phoenix, other media outlets and advertisers.
The Hungarian mathematician John von Neumann invented game theory in the late 1920s because classical economic analysis couldn’t explain many everyday strategic decisions. For example, a couple of weeks ago the Red Sox traded for a second baseman named Pokey Reese. They then had two choices: They could offer him about $5 million dollars a year and secure his services, or they could offer him less money and risk losing him to another team.
The Red Sox actually faced quite a complicated decision. They had to determine the likelihood that another team would trump their offer if they tried to sign Reese for only $4 million. They had to consider how their fans would react to losing him. They also had signed a new center fielder immediately after acquiring Reese and suddenly faced stricter budget constraints. They also had to consider which of their rivals might scoop up the slick-fielding second baseman; losing Reese to the Yankees would be much worse than losing him to the San Diego Padres.
Ultimately, Sox general manager Dan Duquette chose not to sign Reese to the $5 million contract, allowing other teams to make a bid for him on the free agent market. He was essentially gambling that the Red Sox could ultimately outbid the other teams — in part because Reese wants to come to Boston — but get his services for less money. Until the invention of game theory, economics didn’t have a unified theory for analyzing decisions like this one. They could explain how large markets work, and how bargainers could improve negotiating positions. Many other factors were simply left to sociologists and psychologists.
When von Neumann tried to fill in this gap, he succeeded in developing a theory, but he only proved that his methods could explain simple games — ones with two players where one player’s gain was the other’s loss. In other words, he could explain contract negotiations between Reese and the Red Sox, as long as nothing else mattered, such as the fans or the Yankees.
Of course, almost all human decisions have more than two actors, and many have outcomes where both sides can win. Subsequently the game theory described by von Neumann, although fascinating, proved to have limited use. John Nash’s contribution, in 1950, was to ingeniously prove that game theory could describe all competition involving an infinite number of players even in games with potentially multiple winners.
In that paper, Nash created the now-well-known concept of Nash equilibriums: The game is over when the participants agree on a set of strategies such that no player wants to change to a different one. A Nash equilibrium doesn’t mean that everyone is happy. It just means that no one wants to switch his position given the decisions of others. In the most famous Nash equilibrium, „the prisoner’s dilemma,“ both players reach an unfortunate stable point. In this game, first described soon after Nash published his thesis, police put two guilty criminals, called, for example, Jim and John, in separate rooms. They can either confess or conceal their guilt. The best solution overall would be for both to deny culpability. But, not knowing what the other will do, each one is better off confessing. John will be in deep trouble if he claims innocence and then Ji

Helen asks…

Are there any apps for iPhone that are like the Texas Hold’em game on Blackberry?

I’d like to find one that will be played with AI players, a progressive bankroll and tournament.. I’d prefer it not be only one on one. I’d like it to be free, but would consider a fairly inexpensive app if it had the features I was looking for. I’ve looked for a while, but have been unsuccessful. Thanks for your help!
