2017 Networks and Heterogeneous Media  
The dynamics of an opinion formation system depend on the state-space [1] and interaction network [11] .  ...  This work formulates the problem of defining a model for opinion dynamics on a general compact Riemannian manifold. Two approaches to modeling opinions on a manifold are explored.  ...  Let N ∈ N represent the number of agents with opinions evolving on M . We denote by x := (x i ) i∈{1,...,N } ∈ M N the set of opinions. For each i ∈ {1, ..., N }, x i ∈ T xi M .  ...

Interacting Social Processes on Interconnected Networks

Lucila G. Alvarez-Zuzek, Cristian E. La Rocca, Federico Vazquez, Lidia A. Braunstein, Peter Csermely
2016 PLoS ONE  
We propose and study a model for the interplay between two different dynamical processes --one for opinion formation and the other for decision making-- on two interconnected networks A and B.  ...  The opinion dynamics on network A corresponds to that of the M-model, where the state of each agent can take one of four possible values (S=-2,-1,1,2), describing its level of agreement on a given issue  ...  Therefore, the shape of V A varies with time through m B . An analogous interpretation can be done for V B , which depends on m A .  ...
