VECTOR OPINION DYNAMICS IN A BOUNDED CONFIDENCE CONSENSUS MODEL
International Journal of Modern Physics C
We study the continuum opinion dynamics of the compromise model of Krause and Hegselmann for a community of mutually interacting agents, by solving numerically a rate equation. The opinions are here represented by bidimensional vectors with real-valued components. We study the situation starting from a uniform probability distribution for the opinion configuration and for different shapes of the confidence range. In all cases, we find that the thresholds for consensus and cluster merging eitherdoi:10.1142/s0129183105008126 fatcat:glkd35sqjjfzxhs7xddvdhsf4m
