Probabilistic Opinion Dynamics

Series: Mathematical Physics and Probability Seminar
Location: Math 402
Presenter: Doron Shahar, University of Arizona

Opinion dynamics involves modeling how members of a group interact with one another. Several phenomena can arise within opinion dynamics including consensus and clustering. We review some of the earlier deterministic models before introducing two probabilistic models of our own.  We prove results about consensus for both of our models. In addition, we discuss the behaviors of repulsing and overshooting opinions.
