How to find ICM talks?
Quid, beside ICM and ECM what are other major congresses/conferences with major proceedings that we can ask about? (I could think also of INTERNATIONAL CONGRESS OF MATHEMATICAL PHYSICS (ICMP)), I am worry that a completely open-ended question will not be so useful without careful management. |

How to find ICM talks?
I am not sure about asking and answering my own question as you suggested, Quid. If you want to ask this, or a more general question, I will be happy to answer. Meanwhile it can be a nice supplement here. |

Grassmann-Plücker relations for permanents
Dear Abdelmalek, many thanks for the answer. You wrote "Set theoretic equations (of degree d+1) were discovered by Brill and Gordan." Can you elaborate on these equations? |

A question about pairs of lines in 3D projective space
Thanks, David. Yes this is correct. But we can identify the quaternions with 2 dimensional v.s. over the complex so we get 8 choose 4. and then we can save a bit by intersecting with a generic hyperplane and get 7 choose 3. I wonder if Amitsur's theorem is relevant. |

Why was John Nash's 1950 Game Theory paper such a big deal?

Why was John Nash's 1950 Game Theory paper such a big deal?
Joël, Of course there are also issues with the notion of value for zero-sum 2-person games, like the need to have mixed strategies which is problematic in various cases (and various others issues). Once you apply Von Neumann and Morgenstern utility theory on mixed outcomes you often loose the zero-sum property. But I agree that the notion of a value of zero-sum games is also very important. |

Dear Joël, I agree. To a large extent Nash equilibrium is a miracle concept leading to (almost) all the problems in applied game theory. It often represents genuine problems and shortcomings not only of economics theory but also of economics reality. Certainly this is something we, as mathematicians can celebrate and be enthusiastic about! |
