The Essential John Nash (Paperback, New Ed): John Nash The Essential John Nash (Paperback, New Ed)

When John Nash won the Nobel prize in economics in 1994, many people were surprised to learn that he was alive and well. Since then, Sylvia Nasar's celebrated biography "A Beautiful Mind," the basis of a new major motion picture, has revealed the man. "The Essential John Nash" reveals his work--in his own words. This book presents, for the first time, the full range of Nash's diverse contributions not only to game theory, for which he received the Nobel, but to pure mathematics--from Riemannian geometry and partial differential equations--in which he commands even greater acclaim among academics. Included are nine of Nash's most influential papers, most of them written over the decade beginning in 1949.

From 1959 until his astonishing remission three decades later, the man behind the concepts "Nash equilibrium" and "Nash bargaining"--concepts that today pervade not only economics but nuclear strategy and contract talks in major league sports--had lived in the shadow of a condition diagnosed as paranoid schizophrenia. In the introduction to this book, Nasar recounts how Nash had, by the age of thirty, gone from being a wunderkind at Princeton and a rising mathematical star at MIT to the depths of mental illness.

In his preface, Harold Kuhn offers personal insights on his longtime friend and colleague; and in introductions to several of Nash's papers, he provides scholarly context. In an afterword, Nash describes his current work, and he discusses an error in one of his papers. A photo essay chronicles Nash's career from his student days in Princeton to the present. Also included are Nash's Nobel citation and autobiography.

"The Essential John Nash" makes it plain why one of Nash's colleagues termed his style of intellectual inquiry as "like lightning striking." All those inspired by Nash's dazzling ideas will welcome this unprecedented opportunity to trace these ideas back to the exceptional mind they came from.

A crucial element in enhancing agricultural productivity growth in Africa is improving the provision of productive investments through more and better public spending in agriculture. Agricultural public spending in Africa not only lags behind other developing regions by several metrics of volume, it is also vitiated by misinvestment such as input subsidies programs and transfers that tend to benefit the better off, with insignificant gains for the poor. Shortcomings of the budgeting process also reduce spending effectiveness. Addressing the quality of public spending and the efficiency of resource use is perhaps even more important than addressing the level of spending. Investments in rural public goods combined with better policies and institutions have driven agricultural productivity growth around the world. The dividends from investments to strengthen markets, expand irrigation, develop and adopt improved technologies can be enormous. Despite high returns on such investments, Sub-Saharan African countries grossly underinvest in them. Rebalancing the composition of public agricultural spending would reap massive payoffs. To realize these benefits requires better choices about how to allocate public agricultural spending and how to ensure that budget processes support those allocations. And making those choices will require overcoming the inertia in policymaking that favors continuing with today s inefficient spending and that favors short-term visible programs over much higher, if less visible, long-term gains.

Existe un consenso creciente en la comunidad cientifica de que el calentamiento global es una amenaza real y presente. Aunque aun hay una gran incertidumbre sobre la velocidad, magnitud e inclusive sobre la direccion de los cambios climaticos futuros, hay evidencias de que sus impactos fisicos y economicos seran regionalmente diferenciados. Se sabe ademas que los paises en desarrollo y las poblaciones de menores niveles de ingresos presentan un mayor grado de vulnerabilidad. Por estas razones, es fundamental que los paises de America Latina desarrollen sus propias estrategias de adaptacion y participen activamente en los esfuerzos internacionales para mitigar esta amenaza global. 'Desarrollo con Menos Carbono' intenta responder a una serie de interrogantes sobre las causas y consecuencias del cambio climatico en el caso de America Latina. ?Cuales son los impactos probables del cambio climatico sobre los paises de America Latina y el Caribe? ?Que paises, regiones y estratos socio-economicos podrian ser los mas afectados? ?De que manera pueden los gobiernos de la region incorporar el cambio climatico en sus politicas y programas? ?Que papel puede jugar America Latina en la mitigacion de un fenomeno que es de naturaleza global? ?Como puede la comunidad internacional mejor ayudar a America Latina a responder a estos desafios? Aunque el estudio no aspira a ofrecer respuestas definitivas para estas interrogantes, se espera que las informaciones y analisis contenidos en el mismo permitan enriquecer los debates sobre las politicas publicas mas adecuadas en esta area cuya importancia para el desarrollo de la region es innegable.

This collection shows the depth and range of James Joyce's relationship with key literary, intellectual and cultural issues that arose in the nineteenth century. Thirteen original essays explore several new themes in Joyce studies, connecting Joyce's writing to that of his predecessors, and linking Joyce's formal innovations to his reading of, and immersion in, nineteenth-century life. The volume begins by addressing Joyce's relationships with fictional forms in nineteenth-century and turn-of-the-century Ireland. Further sections explore the rise of new economies of consumption and Joyce's formal adaptations of major intellectual figures and issues. What emerges is a portrait of Joyce as he has not previously been seen, giving scholars and students of fin-de-siecle culture, literary modernism and English and Irish literature fresh insight into one of the most important writers of the past century.

Comedy / Characters: 3 male, 7 female, 4 extras (women)

Scenery: Interior

Orphaned as a child to be raised by his scientist uncle deep in the Canadian woods, Romeo Montague has never set eyes upon a woman in his over twenty-one years. That is all about to change when two Americans - Larry McNeil and Rex Simons - stumble across him in the woods and invite him to visit them in the States. He arrives to find a house full of women, including Larry's two outgoing sisters, Connie and Billie, and LaReina, the Spanish maid. Throw in Larry's expected fiance Orpha, the vivacious Aunt Rachel, and a bevy of Amazon furniture repossessors and poor Romeo faces a veritable female overload. However, he handles it all with aplomb and even manages to save Larry's inheritance, Rex's smashed car and the family furniture. As befitting this gentle romantic comedy, the play ends with kisses all around.

James Joyce and the Act of Reception - Reading, Ireland, Modernism (Paperback): John Nash James Joyce and the Act of Reception - Reading, Ireland, Modernism (Paperback)
John Nash
R714 Discovery Miles 7 140 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

James Joyce and the Act of Reception is a detailed account of Joyce's own engagement with the reception of his work. It shows how Joyce's writing, from the earliest fiction to Finnegans Wake, addresses the social conditions of reading (particularly in Ireland). Most notably, it echoes and transforms the responses of some of Joyce's actual readers, from family and friends to key figures such as Eglinton and Yeats. This study argues that the famous 'unreadable' quality of Joyce's writing is a crucial feature of its historical significance. Not only does Joyce engage with the cultural contexts in which he was read but, by inscribing versions of his own contemporary reception within his writing, he determines that his later readers read through the responses of earlier ones. In its focus on the local and contemporary act of reception, Joyce's work is seen to challenge critical accounts of both modernism and deconstruction.

Policy makers in many countries in the Latin American and Caribbean region have found it challenging to determine how to treat natural resource commodity production and how to manage the recurrent cycles of booms and busts. 'Natural Resources in Latin America and the Caribbean: Beyond Booms and Busts?' addresses the major concerns associated with commodity dependence, summarizing the state of the art in existing literature and filling in the knowledge gaps with new analysis. The report finds that some commonly accepted negative effects of dependence on natural resources are largely myths, while some are realities. But the authors find that all the effects can be managed, and they provide practical advice on how to do so. Issues covered include long-term fiscal growth, fiscal volatility, institutional impacts, and environmental and social effects. The report analyzes the implications for the region s development and policies. 'Natural Resources in Latin America and the Caribbean: Beyond Booms and Busts?' will be of interest to policy makers, academics, and analysts, as well as others interested in the economics of commodity markets and their role in economic development."

This book presents for the first time a collective examination of the issue of audience in relation to Joyce's work and the cultural moments of its reception. While many of the essays gathered in this volume are concerned with particular readers and readings of Joyce's work, they all, individually and generally, gesture at something broader than a specific act of reception. Joyce's Audiences is an important narrative of the cultural receptions of Joyce but it is also an exploration of the author's own fascination with audiences, reflecting a wider concern with reading and interpretation in general. Twelve essays by an international cast of Joyce critics deal with: the censorship and promotion of Ulysses; the 'plain reader' in modernism; Richard Ellmann's influence on Joyce's reputation; the implied audiences of Stephen Hero and Portrait; Borges's relation with Joyce; the study of Joyce in Taiwan; the promotion of Joyce in the U.S.; the complaint that there is insufficient time to read Joyce's work; the revisions to "Work in Progress" that respond to specific reviews; strategies of critical interpretation; Joyce and feminism; and the 'belated' readings of post-structuralism.
