This paper introduces a Markov chain approach that allows a rigorous analysis of agent based opinion dynamics as well as other related agent based models (ABM). By viewing the ABM dynamics as a micro-description of the process, we show how the corresponding macro-description is obtained by a projection construction. Then, well known conditions for(More)
This paper examines the interplay of opinion exchange dynamics and communication network formation. An opinion formation procedure is introduced which is based on an abstract representation of opinions as k–dimensional bit–strings. Individuals interact if the difference in the opinion strings is below a defined similarity threshold dI. Depending on dI ,(More)
A model is developed to study the effectiveness of innovation and its impact on structure creation on agent-based societies. The abstract model that is developed is easily adapted to any particular field. In an interacting environment, the agents receive something from the environment (the other agents) in exchange for their effort and pay the environment a(More)

It demonstrates that S&P500 market space can be described using the geometrical and topologi-cal characteristics of its dynamics. The authors proposed to measure(More)
Endogenous, ideas-led, growth theory and agent based modelling with neighbourhood effects literature are crossed. In an economic overlapping generations framework, it is shown how social interactions and neighbourhood effects are of vital importance in the endogenous determination of the long run number of skilled workers and therefore of the growth(More)
In this paper, we inspect well–known population genetics and social dynamics models. In these models, interacting individuals , while participating in a self-organizing process, give rise to the emergence of complex behaviors and patterns. While one main focus in population genetics is on the adaptive behavior of a population, social dynamics is more often(More)
Gender differences in collaborative research have received little attention when compared with the growing importance that women hold in academia and research. Unsurprisingly, most of bibliomet-ric databases have a strong lack of directly available information by gender. Although empirical-based network approaches are often used in the study of research(More)
