Here we present an agent-based model where agents interact with other agents by playing a hybrid of dictator and ultimatum games in a co-evolving social network. The basic assumption about the behaviour of the agents in both games is that they try to attain superior socioeconomic positions relative to other agents. As the model parameters we have chosen the relative proportions of the dictator and ultimatum game strategies being played between a pair of agents in a single social transaction and… Expand
Modeling the interplay between epidemics and regional socio-economics
TLDR
It is found that the willingness of populations to comply with authorities' recommendations has the most drastic effect to the spreading of epidemic: periodic waves spread almost unimpeded in non-compliant populations, while in compliant ones the spread is minimal with a chaotic spreading pattern and significantly lower infection rates.

Network structures, environmental technology and contagion
TLDR
This paper represents a social system as a network of agents and model the process of technology diffusion as a contagion propagating in such a network, to address the question of how to maximize the contagion of a technology subject to learning effects. Expand

TLDR
Simulation results reveal that raising the minimum acceptable level or including fairness consideration in a game does not always promote fairness level in ultimatum games in a complex network, and different social preferences create different effects on fairness emergence in the spatialUltimatum game.

Modelling community formation driven by the status of individual in a society
TLDR
An agent-based, network model to mimic the ranking behaviour of individuals and its possible repercussions in human society is proposed and it is seen that for small number of agents the resulting network consists of disjoint weakly connected communities while being highly assortative and homophilic.

Status maximization as a source of fairness in a networked dictator game
TLDR
This study analyses a simple agent-based model, where individuals play the repeated dictator game in a social network they can modify, and finds that individual strategies used in the game vary greatly, from selfish to selfless, and that both of the above parameters determine when individuals form complex and cohesive social networks.

Opinion and community formation in coevolving networks.
TLDR
This model includes the opinion-dependent link-rewiring scheme to describe network topology coevolution with a slower time scale than that of the opinion formation and shows the importance of the separation between fast and slow time scales resulting in the network to organize as well-connected small communities of agents with the same opinion.

Dynamics of deceptive interactions in social networks
TLDR
It is found that lies shape the topology of social networks, especially the formation of tightly linked, small communities with loose connections between them, and agents with a larger proportion of deceptive interactions are the ones that connect communities of different opinion and have substantial centrality in the network.

The dynamics of opinion in hierarchical organizations
TLDR
A simple model with no social mobility, where each agent belongs to a class in the hierarchy and has also a persuasion capability, finds that the stratum where the dominant opinion arises from is strongly dependent on the relative population of each hierarchy level. Expand

We introduce a model for the formation of social networks, which takes into account the homophily or the tendency of individuals to associate and bond with similar others, and the mechanisms ofExpand
