ON THE DEATH OF JOHN NASH
We deeply mourn the passing away of Alicia and John Nash.
John was a member of the Stony Brook Center for Game Theory. Since 1996, he participated in our summer activities with unfailing regularity and presented several lectures on the "Method of Acceptances" and related ideas, which described his new approach to cooperative games. He also gave abundantly of his time to both colleagues and students. In his characteristic, unassuming style, he would mix with scholars from around the world and make it a special point to attend talks by young researchers in the field. Everyone found John to be without an iota of self-importance, very forthcoming and a source of great inspiration.
He shall be sorely missed and the memory of him will shine forever at Stony Brook!
