Nash, John. Edited by R. P. Boas, Irving Kaplansky, P. R. Halmos, and Hans Samelson
Proceedings of the American Mathematical Society: April, 1959.
American Mathematical Society, Menasha, Wisconsin and Providence, Rhode Island. Rare April 1959 American Mathematical Society journal from the collection of Nobel Prize-winning economist John Nash with his ownership signature. Octavo, original wrappers as issued. Signed by Nash in green ink on the front panel, "J. Nash." Nash was known to always carry a variety of colored pens and use many colors of chalk to differentiate mathematical problems before his students. The journal was published in the very month and year that Nash was committed to McLean Hospital after his struggle with paranoid schizophrenia manifested itself during a highly anticipated proof of the Reimann hypothesis in front of the American Mathematical Society at Columbia University. Nash was hospitalized several times after this initial diagnosis, but improved and returned to academic work in 1970. In near fine condition. Laid in is a postcard addressed to Nash at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, inviting him to Arnold Shapiro's seminars on "Symplectic Manifolds" at Brandeis University, beginning on June 2, 1959. Symplectic Manifolds was one of Nash's areas of expertise. Rare and highly desirable signed by Nash at such a pivotal point in his career. In addition to his essential contributions to pure mathematics and differential equations, American mathematician John Nash earned fame for his practical work in game theory. His thesis on non-cooperative games included the definition of the Nash equilibrium, which earned him the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences in 1994.
