Quantcast

On the afternoon of the Nobel announcement, Nash said that he had won for game theory and that he felt that game theory was like string theory: a subject of great intrinsic intellectual interest that the world wishes to imagine can be of some utility.


He said it with enough scepticism in his voice to make it funny.
