You 've got an interesting measure for achievement ;) It is mainly viewpoint
dependent what achievment is significant or not. E.g. the work of Galois was
not considered to be signifcant 40 years long, since nobody understood it.
The Nash equlibrium is not a high level mathematics, it is still
be a milestone in economics. In the communism, it would not be considered
to be too significant. etc. etc.
