Non-Equilibrium Phase Transitions Induced by Social Temperature in Kinetic Exchange Opinion Models on Regular Lattices

In this work we study the critical behavior of a three-state opinion model in the presence of noise. This noise represents the independent behavior, that plays the role of social temperature. Each

Consequences of nonconformist behaviors in a continuous opinion model

Investigation of opinion formation in a kinetic exchange opinion model, where opinions are represented by numbers in the real interval and agents are typified by the individual degree of conviction about the opinion that they support, emphasizes the emergence of extreme opinions.

Non-equilibrium dynamics in a three state opinion formation model with stochastic extreme switches

We investigate the non-equilibrium dynamics of a three state kinetic exchange model of opinion formation, where switches between extreme states are possible, depending on the value of a parameter q .

Noise and disorder: phase transitions and universality in a model of opinion formation

It is found that the critical exponents are universal over the order-disorder frontier, presenting the same universality class of the mean-field Ising model.

Disorder-induced phase transition in an opinion dynamics model: Results in two and three dimensions.

The universality class of the phase transitions in the model is found to be same as Ising model in the respective dimensions.

Phase transitions in the q-voter model with noise on a duplex clique.

A nonlinear q-voter model with stochastic noise, interpreted in the social context as independence, on a duplex network is studied and three methods of transferring the model from a mono- to a multiplex network are proposed.

Generalized Independence in the q-Voter Model: How Do Parameters Influence the Phase Transition?

The role of flexibility, which can be understood as an amount of variability associated with an independent behavior, as well as the role of the average network degree in shaping the character of the phase transition are determined.

Long route to consensus: Two-stage coarsening in a binary choice voting model.

It is shown in a kinetic exchange opinion model considered on L×L square lattices, that while such frozen states could be avoided, an exponentially slow approach to consensus is manifested.

Consensus formation in continuous opinion dynamics on quasiperiodic lattices

We studied the Biswas–Chatterjee–Sen (BCS) consensus formation model, also known as the Kinetic Continuous Opinion Dynamics (KCOD) model on quasiperiodic lattices by using Kinetic Monte Carlo



Opinion formation in kinetic exchange models: spontaneous symmetry-breaking transition.

We propose a minimal multiagent model for the collective dynamics of opinion formation in the society by modifying kinetic exchange dynamics studied in the context of income, money, or wealth

Van Kampen's expansion approach in an opinion formation model

Abstract. We analyze a simple opinion formation model consisting of two parties, A and B, and a group I, of undecided agents. We assume that the supporters of parties A and B do not interact among

A phase boundary given by λ=1-μ/2 is obtained separating the symmetric and symmetry broken phases: the effect of the influencing term enhances the possibility of reaching a consensus in the society.

Effects of agents' mobility on opinion spreading in Sznajd model

Abstract Under synchronous updating and allowing the agents to move in the lattice or underlying network, we find that the Sznajd model always reaches a consensus as a steady state, – because agent

Constrained opinion dynamics: freezing and slow evolution

We study opinion formation in a population of leftists, centrists and rightist. In an interaction between neighbouring agents, a centrist and a leftist can become both centrists or leftists (and

Phase transition in the Sznajd model with independence

A model of opinion dynamics which describes two major types of social influence —conformity and independence is proposed and it is shown that there is a continuous phase transition between conformity and independence.

Phase transitions in the q-voter model with two types of stochastic driving.

The concept of social temperature is clarified and it is shown that different types of noise may lead to qualitatively different emergent properties and that in the model with anticonformity the critical value of noise increases with parameter q, whereas in the models with independence the criticalvalue of noise decreases with q.

Ultimate fate of constrained voters

We examine the ultimate fate of individual opinions in a socially interacting population of leftists, centrists and rightists. In an elemental interaction between agents, a centrist and a leftist can
