What is a leader of opinion formation in bounded confidence models?

A new bounded confidence model is proposed and studied the self-formation of opinion in heterogeneous societies composed by agents of two psychological types, concord (C-) and partial antagonism (PA-) agents and found that in the C-society a leader showing high opinion tolerance has more control over the population.

Consensus, Bi-polarization and Multiformity in Opinion Dynamics with Bidirectional Thresholds

A novel model on networks of agents with the bi-directional bounded thresholds for studying the evolution of opinion dynamics and the simulation results show that the proposed mechanism can effectively explain the formation of bi-polarization during opinion evolution.

Opinion Dynamics in Social Networks with Heterogeneous Relationships

A model of opinion dynamics in a network with heterogeneous relationships, where the influence of individuals depends on theirheterogeneous relationships is proposed, which finds that the distribution of opinions at steady state depends on the ratio of number of positive relationships and average connectivity of a network.

An Investigation into the Sensitivity of Social Opinion Networks to Heterogeneous Goals and Preferences

This work shows that polarization and consensus dynamics, as well as topological clustering effects, may rely more than previously known on the interplay between individuals' goals for the composition of their neighborhood's opinions.

Coevolution of Opinions and Directed Adaptive Networks in a Social Group

The Hegselmann-Krause (HK) model is extended to investigate the coevolution of opinions and observational networks (directed ErdA¶s-RA©nyi network) and reveals that on static networks, final opinions are influenced by percolation properties of networks; but on directed adaptive networks, it is basically determined by the rewiring probability, which increases the average degree of networks.

Opinion interaction network: opinion dynamics in social networks with heterogeneous relationships

It is found that the opinions at steady state depend on the degree of social harmoniousness and average connectivity, and the similar pattern can be observed in the network of Erdös_Rényi, small world and scale free, which illustrates that the topological properties have few effects on opinion dynamics with heterogeneous relationships.

Effects of leaders and social power on opinion formation in complex networks

The results show the appropriateness of scale-free topology in hierarchal organizations where leaders posit influence on peripheral agents, and show that the consensus time could be significantly decreased by introducing social power.

Numerical Interval Opinion Dynamics in Social Networks: Stable State and Consensus

A numerical interval opinion dynamics model is proposed to investigate the process of forming collective opinions in a group of interaction agents under an uncertain and social network context and identify the stable and oscillation agents whose opinions will always be fluctuating in the opinion evolution process.

Opinion formation in social networks: a time-variant and non-linear model

This paper develops a discrete-time, non-linear, and time-variant model of opinion formation in a social network with global interactions to investigate the relationship between the final consensus

Continuous Opinion Dynamics under Bounded Confidence: A Survey

The agent-based and density-based modeling frameworks including the cases of multidimensional opinions and heterogeneous bounds ousting Monte Carlo style and master equation style are presented.

Opinion and community formation in coevolving networks.

This model includes the opinion-dependent link-rewiring scheme to describe network topology coevolution with a slower time scale than that of the opinion formation and shows the importance of the separation between fast and slow time scales resulting in the network to organize as well-connected small communities of agents with the same opinion.

How can extremism prevail? A study based on the relative agreement interaction model

A new model of interactions, called relative agreement model, is proposed, which is a variant of the previously discussed bounded confidence and introduces extremist agents by attributing a much lower uncertainty (and thus higher persuasion) to a small proportion of agents at the extremes of the opinion distribution.

Comparing Extremism Propagation Patterns in Continuous Opinion Models

3 typical behaviours with a single initial extremist are identified, which help to explain the different results of extremism propagation yielded by 4 continuous opinion models, when the main parameters vary, on different types of networks.

Heterogeneous bounds of confidence: Meet, discuss and find consensus!

The surprising result is that a society of agents with two different bounds of confidence (open-minded and closed-minded agents) can find consensus even when both bounds ofconfidence are significantly below the critical bound of confidence of a homogeneous society.

Opinion dynamics and bounded confidence: models, analysis and simulation

This article investigates various models for the dynamics of continuous opinions by analytical methods as well as by computer simulations for the classical model of consensus formation, a time-dependent version and a nonlinear version with bounded confidence of the agents.

We present a general sequential probabilistic frame, which extends a series of earlier opinion dynamics models. In addition, it orders and classifies all of the existing two-state spin systems. The

Effects of mass media action on the Axelrod model with social influence.

The Axelrod model with social influence interaction is extended through the inclusion of a superagent which acts over the whole system and has non-null overlap with each agent of the society and might be relevant in several socioeconomic contexts and for the study of the emergence of collective behavior in complex social systems.
