"Beautiful Mind" Mathematician John Nash Killed in Taxi Crash

"Beautiful Mind" Mathematician John Nash Killed in Taxi CrashSubmit Comment
Nobel Prize-winning mathematician John Forbes Nash Jr, subject of the 2001 Oscar-winning film "A Beautiful Mind," and his wife Alicia Nash were both killed Saturday when their taxi crashed on the New Jersey Turnpike. He was 86 and she was 82 years old.

John and Alicia were passengers in a Ford Crown Victoria taxi when their vehicle attempted to pass a Chrysler and hit a guardrail. They were both ejected from the vehicle. The taxi driver sustained non life-threatening injuries, and the driver of the other vehicle was treated for back and neck injuries.

John was an instructor at MIT and earned the Nobel Prize in economics in 1994 for his work in game theory, sharing the award with two other mathematicians. He was born in Bluefield, West Virginia and attended Princeton University. John and Alicia married in 1957 and had a son, John. The couple divorced in 1963 but remained close before remarrying in 2001.

John was portrayed by Russell Crowe in Ron Howard's "A Beautiful Mind," which focused on Nash's struggles with schizophrenia. It earned four Academy Awards, including best picture. Alicia was played by Jennifer Connelly, who earned the best supporting actress Oscar for the role.

Crowe, Howard and producer Brian Grazer expressed their condolences Sunday on Twitter. "Stunned...my heart goes out to John and Alicia and family," Crowe tweeted. "An amazing partnership. Beautiful minds, beautiful hearts."

Howard wrote: "RIP Brilliant #NobelPrize winning John Nash and and his remarkable wife Alicia. It was an honor telling part of their story." Grazer added: "Incredibly sad to lose the wonderful, intelligent miracle of John Nash and his wife."

Don't give a sh*t. Stupid taxi driver. And they were both nearly ninety.

Anyway, looks like he lost that final round of game theory....

And still no movie about Srinivasa Ramanujan, who was a vastly superior mathematician to Nash.

Really, they call Ramanujan "the man who saw infinity". And he did.
