I came to the conclusion...

That, joining this forum was a Nash Equilibrium.

hi therussequilibrium

Welcome to the forum.

this forum was a Nash Equilibrium.

'was' ? Do you mean that something has recently happened to change this equilibrium state?

If so, what?

That answer to one side for the moment, I think I could find posts that would disprove your assertion.

Interesting .......

Hi Bob!

It would seem that my structure in my assertion was wrong, throwing off data. More correct is my conclusion is: "that joining this forum ** is** a Nash Equilibrium."

And here are my assumptions given my estimated values of what joining would have on our species as a whole.

General Population

________|_Joining|__Not___|

| 5 | 1|

Joining | | |

________|_5_____|_3______|

| 3 | 1|

Not | | |

| | |

________|_1_____|_1______|

Joining, from my calculation(maybe I have overestimated what the values truly are) Joining is in one's best interest as advancements in mathematics can only go to bettering the human species as a whole; mathematics, in my humble opinion, is the building blocks to life.

"that joining this forum is a Nash Equilibrium."

Now that's a statement I wouldn't argue with!!!

And also demonstrates one of the great features of the forum .... a poster, and the person who replies, can both move forward in understanding just by communicating.

You can quote me on it to her if that helps.
