This paper introduces and analyses some models in the framework of Mean Field Games describing interactions between two populations motivated by the studies on urban settlements and residential choice by Thomas Schelling. For static games, a large population limit is proved. For differential games with noise, the existence of solutions is established for the systems of partial differential equations of Mean Field Game theory, in the stationary and in the evolutive case. Numerical methods are proposed, with several simulations. In the examples and in the numerical results, particular emphasis is put on the phenomenon of segregation between the populations.
