Aperiodic dynamics in a deterministic model of attitude formation in social groups

Abstract:

Homophily and social influence are the fundamental mechanisms that drive the evolution of attitudes, beliefs and behaviour within social groups. Homophily relates the similarity between pairs of individuals' attitudinal states to their frequency of interaction, and hence structural tie strength, while social influence causes the convergence of individuals' states during interaction. Building on these basic elements, we propose a new mathematical modelling framework to describe the evolution o...
