Effects of network topology and trait distribution on collective decision making

  title={Effects of network topology and trait distribution on collective decision making},
  author={Pengyu Liu and Jie Jian},
Social networks play an important role in analyzing the impact of individual-level interactions on societal or economic outcomes. We model interactive decision making for a community of individuals with different traits, represented by a social network with trait-attributed nodes. We develop a deterministic process generating a sequence of choices for each individual based on a trait-attributed social network, initial choices of individuals and a set of predetermined trait-dependent rules for… 



Social Distance, Heterogeneity and Social Interactions

A crucial ingredient in social interaction models is the structure of peer groups, which link individuals with similar characteristics. We propose and study a dynamic binary choice model with social

The Impact of Social Structure on Economic Outcomes

S ocial structure, especially in the form of social networks, affects economic outcomes for three main reasons. First, social networks affect the flow and the quality of information. Much information

Discrete Choice with Social Interactions

This paper provides an analysis of aggregate behavioural outcomes when individual utility exhibits social interaction effects. We study generalized logistic models of individual choice which

From private attitude to public opinion: A dynamic theory of social impact.

A computer simulation modeled the change of attitudes in a population resulting from the interactive, reciprocal, and reeursive operation of Latan~'s (198 I) theory of social impact, which specifies

Conformity, Anticonformity and Polarization of Opinions: Insights from a Mathematical Model of Opinion Dynamics

A version of the q-voter model of opinion dynamics with two types of responses to social influence: conformity and anticonformity, put on a social network with the double-clique topology in order to check how the interplay between those responses impacts the opinion dynamics in a population divided into two antagonistic segments.

Segregation among subclasses may produce a coexistence of opinions at the class level, thus averting global extremism, and insight into the existence of contradictory public opinions in similar social-cultural neighborhoods is given.

Nonlinear q-voter model.

A nonlinear variant of the voter model, the q-voter model, in which q neighbors are consulted for a voter to change opinion is introduced, and in mean field the model exhibits a disordered phase for high epsilon and an ordered one for low Epsilon.

The psychology of social impact.

The author proposes a theory of social im- pact specifying the effect of other persons on an in- dividual. According to the theory, when other people are the source of impact and the individual is

Multi-scale Attributed Node Embedding

It is proved theoretically that matrices of node-feature pointwise mutual information are implicitly factorized by the embeddings, and computationally efficient and outperform comparable models on social networks and web graphs.
