Nash established the mathematical principles of game theory, a branch
of mathematics that examines the rivalries among competitors with mixed
interests. Known as the Nash solution, or the Nash equilibrium, his
theory attempted to explain the dynamics of threat and action among
competitors. Despite its practical limitations, the Nash solution was
widely applied by business strategists.
