We have investigated a simple coevolutionary network model incorporating three processes-changes of opinions, homophily, and heterophily. In this model, each node holds one of G opinions and changes its opinion, as in the voter model. Homophily is the tendency for connections to form between individuals of the same opinions and heterophily is the opposite effect. If there is no heterophily, this model corresponds to the Holme and Newman model [Phys. Rev. E 74, 056108 (2006)]. We show that the… CONTINUE READING
