Formation of opinion of one is own conviction about a Small World topology

  title={Formation of opinion of one is own conviction about a Small World topology},
  author={Victor H. Blanco},
A model of opinion formation on a Small World type topology is studied to observe qualitatively its difference with one’s own conviction versus the opinion of others. It is possible to observe that the relation between conviction to copy the agent with whom it interacts and this agent is an undecided agent who leaves decisions to chance becomes outstanding since the probability of undecided agents is greater than 0.1 and is maintained until 0.9 so that in the border regions, it is only a… Expand

The results suggest that the presence of inflexible agents affects the critical behavior of the system, causing either the shift of the critical point or the suppression of the ordering phase transition, depending on the groups of opinions to which the intransigents belong. Expand
