      Consensus formation in a social network is modeled by a dynamic game of a prescribed duration played by members of the network. Each member independently minimizes a cost function that represents his/her motive. An integral ...
    • Contagion of network products in small-world networks 

      İkizler, Hüseyin (Springer, 2019-05-20)
      We formulate a model in which agents embedded in an exogenous social network decide whether to adopt a new network product or not. In the theoretical part of the paper, we characterize the stochastically stable equilibria ...

      Social networks have been mostly based on a centralized infrastructure where the owner hosts all the data and services. This model of “fat server & thin clients” results in many systems and practical problems such as ...
    • Opinion dynamics of stubborn agents under the presence of a troll as differential game 

      Yıldız, A.; Özgüler, Arif Bülent (Scientific and Technical Research Council of Turkey - TUBITAK,Turkiye Bilimsel ve Teknik Arastirma Kurumu, 2021-11-30)
      The question of whether opinions of stubborn agents result in Nash equilibrium under the presence of troll is investigated in this study. The opinion dynamics is modelled as a differential game played by n agents during a ...
