And rightly so, because his groundbreaking work in game theory and his Nash equilibrium (along with differential geometry, and partial differential equations) provides deep insight into the factors that govern chance and events in the complicated systems of our daily and business life.

. Rather, the best results come from developing a solution that optimizes the needs of the group.

In other words


So thank you Dr. Nash. You’ve inspired many, including the researchers at the University of Tennessee who developed the Vested sourcing business model—where collaboration to optimize results is essential.
