Notes

  1. This is done so alphabetically, as is the arrangement in this Special Issue, with respect to the first author, although in the case of Chen and Yu, they state that the latter is the first author. An additional exception is the concise ‘introductory’ essay on the Life of Herbert Simon by Velupillai and Ragupathy, for ‘obvious’ stylistic reasons.

  2. We have replaced the definite article used by the authors, here, with the indefinite ‘a’, which seems to us to shed the kind of light which is in the spirit of Simon.
