Hi, ivar!

It's really interesting to hear about a seminar of John Nash.
I think the seminar is just finished.
If you participated in, how was it?

with deep curiosity :eek: ,

Hi there,

It was very interesting. He presented his paper "Ideal Money" and the place was packed.... and then some.

They had to change venue, and this new room had 400 seats, I guess we were about 600 in there, and I was told that about 700 was left in the street, no room for everyone.

He presented in English, and due to language problems (trying to make things as easy for the non-English speaking Spaniards as possible) he just read the paper from an overhead projector. They also had a translation to Spanish (simultaneous) but not enough headsets for everyone. Not the best way of presenting, but it was actually not bad. He made several stops and added his own comments.

He seemed like a nice man. I liked it.

Thanks ivar,
I can imagine with your kind description.
(I think it was a quite big seminar)
Also thanks for the hyperlink of the paper. Now I'm reading it!
