A review by John Milnor of the biography of John Forbes Nash, jr. ``A
Beautiful Mind'' by Sylvia Nasar appears in a recent issue of the Notices
of the American Mathematical Society (vol.
45, November 1998). It includes the following paragraph:
``Over the years the developments from Nash's seemingly simple idea
[ed. non cooperative
game-theory] have led to fundamental changes in economics and political
science. Nasar illustrates the
dollars and cents impact of game-theoretic ideas by describing ``The
Greatest Auction Ever'' in 1994, when
the US government sold off large portions of the electromagnetic spectrum
to commercial users. A
multiple-round procedure was carefully designed by experts in game
theory of auctions to maximize both
the payoff to the government and the utility to of the purchased wavelengths
to the respective buyers........

were devised ... The science of auctions is a fashionable part
of a complex branch of mathematics called game theory.
