John Nash has passed away

Nobel laureate John Nash passed away yesterday in an auto accident on the New Jersey Turnpike.  Veterans of MBA 505 will all certainly recall the Nash equilibrium concept in game theory.  Others will remember the movie "A Beautiful Mind," where Nash was played by Russell Crowe.  See the NYT obit for a solid recap of Nash's contributions to economics and mathematics.
