Agreement dynamics on small-world networks

  title={Agreement dynamics on small-world networks},
  author={L. Dall’Asta and Andrea Baronchelli and Alain Barrat and Vittorio Loreto},
– In this paper we analyze the effect of a non-trivial topology on the dynamics of the so-called Naming Game, a recently introduced model which addresses the issue of how shared conventions emerge spontaneously in a population of agents. We consider in particular the small-world topology and study the convergence towards the global agreement as a function of the population size N as well as of the parameter p which sets the rate of rewiring leading to the small-world network. As long as p ≫ 1/N… CONTINUE READING
