Consensus and relation networks

Murat Ahat , Omar Bennani , Marc Bui and Soufian Ben Amor


In this paper, we propose an extension to bounded confidence model which is a nonlinear opinion dynamics model. The goal of this new extension is to emphasize the underlying network structure of the model, since in real life network structure plays an important , if not vital, role in opinion dynamics. And with simulation results, we show how networks, such as grid and scale-free, affect the consensus formation in bounded confidence model separately as well as together.
