We analyze the evolution of Sznajd Model with synchronous updating in several complex networks. Similar to the model on square lattice, we have found a transition between the state with nonconsensus and the state with complete consensus in several complex networks. Furthermore, by adjusting the network parameters, we find that a large clustering coefficient does not favor development of a consensus. In particular, in the limit of large system size with the initial concentration p =0.5 of…

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
Opinion Dynamics in Social Networks with Heterogeneous Relationships
TLDR
A model of opinion dynamics in a network with heterogeneous relationships, where the influence of individuals depends on theirheterogeneous relationships is proposed, which finds that the distribution of opinions at steady state depends on the ratio of number of positive relationships and average connectivity of a network.
Stochastic Sznajd Model in open community
TLDR
The Sznajd Model for opinion formation is extended by introducing persuasion probabilities for opinions, and a linear relation between the transition probability for opinion B and the influence of the environment on B is revealed.
Opinion interaction network: opinion dynamics in social networks with heterogeneous relationships
TLDR
It is found that the opinions at steady state depend on the degree of social harmoniousness and average connectivity, and the similar pattern can be observed in the network of Erdös_Rényi, small world and scale free, which illustrates that the topological properties have few effects on opinion dynamics with heterogeneous relationships.
Three types of outflow dynamics on square and triangular lattices and universal scaling.
TLDR
A generalization of the one-dimensional outflow dynamics (KD) introduced as a simplification of Galam dynamics (GD) proposed in an earlier paper, which shows differences and similarities between three types of the outflows dynamics.
A New Network Feature Affects the Intervention Performance on Public Opinion Dynamic Networks
TLDR
A new network feature Ω is defined, called ‘network differential degree’, to measure how node degrees couple with influential values in the network, i.e., large Ω indicates nodes with high degree is more likely to couple with large influential value.
Eigenmode of the Decision-by-Majority Process in Complex Networks
TLDR
It is shown that the magnitude of the largest eigenvector at the initial states are key determinant for the resulting dynamics.
Network feature and the intervention performance
TLDR
A new network feature Ω is defined, called ‘network differential degree’, to measure how node degrees couple with influential values in the network, i.e., large Ω indicates nodes with high degree is more likely to couple with large influential value.

Emergence of scaling in random networks
TLDR
A model based on these two ingredients reproduces the observed stationary scale-free distributions, which indicates that the development of large networks is governed by robust self-organizing phenomena that go beyond the particulars of the individual systems.
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

Abstract:We study the small-world networks recently introduced by Watts and Strogatz [Nature 393, 440 (1998)], using analytical as well as numerical tools. We characterize the geometrical properties
OPINION FORMATION ON A DETERMINISTIC PSEUDO-FRACTAL NETWORK
TLDR
A model for elections based on the Sznajd model is studied and the exponent obtained for the distribution of votes during the transient agrees with those obtained for real elections in Brazil and India.
Collective dynamics of ‘small-world’ networks
TLDR
Simple models of networks that can be tuned through this middle ground: regular networks ‘rewired’ to introduce increasing amounts of disorder are explored, finding that these systems can be highly clustered, like regular lattices, yet have small characteristic path lengths, like random graphs.
APPLICATION OF THE SZNAJD SOCIOPHYSICS MODEL TO SMALL-WORLD NETWORKS
The Sznajd model for the opinion formation is generalized to small-world networks. This generalization destroyed the stalemate fixed point. Then a simple definition of leaders is included. No fixed

The Sznajd sociophysics model is generalized on the triangular lattice with pure antiferromagnetic opinion and also with both ferromagnetic and antiferromagnetic opinions. The slogan of the trade
DIFFICULTY FOR CONSENSUS IN SIMULTANEOUS OPINION FORMATION OF SZNAJD MODEL
TLDR
This work replaces the usual random sequential updating rule (corresponding to informal encounters) by simultaneous updating (like in formal votes during meetings) and finds that this change makes a complete consensus much more difficult.
