Constantinos Daskalakis

Constantinos Daskalakis was born in 1981. He is a university professor. He has also got a lot of degrees. He became famous when he solved the John Forbes Nash puzzle.

John Forbes Nash proved that if there are a lot of general situations, there is always a point of balance. John Forbes Nash won a prize for this invention. He had created a simpler system of relations of the people who have different benefits, such as when playing games. Daskalakis, however, proved that, if we buy something, even if there are different benefits, we can find a balance. However, sometimes this balance is impossible.

For this proof he won a prize by the international organization ACM (Association for Computing Machinery) in 2008.
