2015 arXiv   pre-print
A widely studied process of influence diffusion in social networks posits that the dynamics of influence diffusion evolves as follows: Given a graph G=(V,E), representing the network, initially only the  ...  to initially influence node v, and the algorithmic problem is to find a set of nodes of minimum total cost that influences the whole network; successively, we study the consequences of giving incentives  ...  Related Works The algorithmic problems we have articulated have roots in the general study of the spread of influence in Social Networks (see [8, 21] and references quoted therein).  ...

A Polyhedral Approach to Least Cost Influence Maximization in Social Networks [article]

Cheng-Lung Chen, Eduardo Pasiliao, Vladimir Boginski
2022 arXiv   pre-print
The least cost influence maximization problem aims to determine minimum cost of partial (e.g., monetary) incentives initially given to the influential spreaders on a social network, so that these early  ...  We illustrate the effectiveness of these inequalities via a delayed cut generation algorithm in the computational experiments.  ...  Preliminary results of this study were presented at the 9th International Conference on Computational Data and Social Networks (CSoNet 2020, December 11-13, 2020, Dallas, TX) and published in the respective  ...

Fake News in Social Networks

Christoph Aymanns, Jakob Foerster, Co-Pierre Georg
2017 Social Science Research Network  
Hence, exposing agents to the possibility of fake news can be an effective way to curtail the spread of fake news in social networks.  ...  We model the spread of news as a social learning game on a network. Agents can either endorse or oppose a claim made in a piece of news, which itself may be either true or false.  ...  The main technical innovation of our paper is to optimize the behavior of agents in a social network via multi-agent deep reinforcement learning.  ...

Identifying Influential Users in Unknown Social Networks for Adaptive Incentive Allocation Under Budget Restriction [article]

Shiqing Wu, Weihua Li, Hao Shen, Quan Bai
2021 arXiv   pre-print
In this light, we intend to utilize social influence existing among users to enhance the effect of incentivization.  ...  Through incentivizing influential users directly, their followers in the social network are possibly incentivized indirectly.  ...  Namely, if we can appropriately incentivize some influential users in a social network, it is possible to affect users' behaviors indirectly via social influence.  ...
