RIP John Nash

I just heard about the death of John Nash, one of the great figures in mathematics and recipient of the 1994 Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel.  BBC News story here.

Update:  More on the life and death of John and Alicia Nash from the New York Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, The Guardian, Le Monde, and Die Zeit.
