Abstract.We study the effect of finite size population in Galam’s model [Eur. Phys. J. B 25, 403 (2002)] of minority opinion spreading and introduce neighborhood models that account for local spatial effects. For systems of different sizes N, the time to reach consensus is shown to scale as $\ln N$ in the original version, while the evolution is much slower in the new neighborhood models. The threshold value of the initial concentration of minority supporters for the defeat of the initial… 
Finite-size effects on the convergence time in continuous-opinion dynamics.
TLDR
Finite-size effects on the convergence time in a continuous-opinion dynamics model finds that the characteristic time to the convergence increases as the system size increases according to a particular functional form in the case of lattice networks.
Social Structure and Opinion Formation
We present a dynamical theory of opinion formation that takes explicitly into account the structure of the social network in which individuals are embedded. The theory predicts the evolution of a set
A note on the consensus time of mean-field majority-rule dynamics
In this work, it is pointed out that in the mean-field version of majority-rule opinion dynamics the dependence of the consensus time on the population size exhibits two regimes. This is determined

Opinion dynamics in a three-choice system
Abstract.We generalize Galam’s model of opinion spreading by introducing three competing choices. At each update, the population is randomly divided in groups of three agents, whose members adopt the
Chaotic, staggered, and polarized dynamics in opinion forming: The contrarian effect.
TLDR
The no-tie-breaking two-state Galam contrarian model of opinion dynamics for update groups of size 3.5 may shed light on recent apparent contradictory elections with on the one hand very close results as in the United States in 2000 and in Germany in 2002 and 2005, and on the other hand, a huge majority as in France in 2002.
Network Models of Minority Opinion Spreading
Although several models in the literature analyze the dynamics of opinion formation, less attention has been paid to explain how the structure of social networks and their contextual circumstances

Abstract:The dynamics of spreading of the minority opinion in public debates (a reform proposal, a behavior change, a military retaliation) is studied using a diffusion reaction model. People move by

Percolation And Galam Theory Of Minority Opinion Spreading
The way in which an opinion rejecting reform can finally become the consensus of everyone was studied by Galam (2002) in a probabilistic model. We now replace his clusters by those formed via random

Abstract.The Sznajd model, which describes opinion formation and social influence, is treated analytically on a complete graph. We prove the existence of the phase transition in the original
Dynamics of majority rule in two-state interacting spin systems.
TLDR
A two-state opinion dynamics model where agents evolve by majority rule is introduced, where a group of agents is specified whose members then all adopt the local majority state.
Persistence of opinion in the Sznajd consensus model: computer simulation
Abstract:The density of never changed opinions during the Sznajd consensus-finding process decays with time t as 1/tθ. We find θ ≃ 3/8 for a chain, compatible with the exact Ising result of Derrida

TLDR
In one dimension and within a Kirkwood decoupling scheme, the final magnetization in a finite-length system has a nontrivial dependence on the initial magnetization for all p not equal p(c), in agreement with numerical results.
