Thomas C. Schelling’s most influential contributions include focal points in coordination games, commitment and credible threats in bargaining, the theory of social dilemmas, and anticipatory self-command in intertemporal choice. His spatial proximity models are early prototypes of cellular automata. Contributions to this special issue were inspired by a few of these theoretical ideas.
