Opinion Dynamics Models with Memory in Coopetitive Social Networks: Analysis, Application and Simulation

  title={Opinion Dynamics Models with Memory in Coopetitive Social Networks: Analysis, Application and Simulation},
  author={Qingsong Liu and Lim Hock Chai},
In some social networks, the opinion forming is based on its own and neighbors’ (initial) opinions, whereas the evolution of the individual opinions is also influenced by the individual’s past opinions in the real world. Unlike existing social network models, in this paper, a novel model of opinion dynamics is proposed, which describes the evolution of the individuals’ opinions not only depends on its own and neighbors’ current opinions, but also depends on past opinions. Memory and memoryless… 


Novel Multidimensional Models of Opinion Dynamics in Social Networks
A novel multidimensional extension of conventional consensus algorithm, describing the evolution of the agents’ opinions on several topics that are interdependent, and hence the opinions being formed on these topics are also mutually dependent.
Opinion Behavior Analysis in Social Networks Under the Influence of Coopetitive Media
This paper investigates how the opinion-forming process evolves over social networks under the media influence, and explains how to steer public opinions towards consensus, polarity, or neutrality, and investigates how an autocratic media coalition might emerge regardless of public views.
A Hybrid Model of Opinion Dynamics With Memory-Based Connectivity
Given a social network where the individuals know the identity of the other members, we present a model of opinion dynamics where the connectivity among the individuals depends on both their current

Opinion Dynamics and the Evolution of Social Power in Influence Networks
This paper provides a rigorous mathematical formulation of the influence network dynamics, characterize its equilibria, and establish its convergence properties for all possible structures of the relative interpersonal weights and corresponding eigenvector centrality scores.
Opinion Dynamics in Social Networks With Hostile Camps: Consensus vs. Polarization
The modulus consensus model is extended to the case where the network topology is an arbitrary time-varying signed graph and it is proved reachingmodulus consensus under mild sufficient conditions of uniform connectivity of the graph.

The paper shows that monotone dynamical systems, due to their order-preserving solutions, are natural candidates to describe the highly predictable process of opinion forming on structurally balanced networks.
