now has a wider interpretation; behavior which used to be classified as irrational has become understandable and rational. Their work has contributed significantly to bridging the gap between economics and other behavioral and social sciences. FURTHER READING A great deal of Schelling’s work is accessible to non-specialists and many of Aumann’s publications contain non-technical discussions of his mathematical results. Dixit and Nalebuff (1991) offer a highly readable introduction to game theory with a focus on applications. Dixit and Skeath (2004) provide an introductory textbook, whereas Fudenberg and Tirole (1991) and Myerson (1991) give more advanced and technical expo- sitions. Biographical and personal details about the laureates may be found in Zeckhauser’s (1989) portrait of Schelling and in Hart’s (2005) interview with Aumann. Literature Aumann, R.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
