Abstract/Artist's Statement

In this senior project, we study the dynamics of opinion exchange, from a probabilistic point of view on Erdos-Renyi random graphs. Specifically, we would like to run computer simulations of common models of opinion exchange such as the Degroot Model, the Voter Model and the Deterministic model. Also, we created a new model based on the Naive Bayesian models named Dynamic Network Model. We would like to observe how the dynamics change by time. One of our objectives is to analysis the four models and see if graph connectivity is a necessary condition for convergence and agreement of opinions on a particular model.
