Social dynamics models may present discontinuities in the right-hand side of the dynamics for multiple reasons, including topology changes and quantization.

Abstract

Social dynamics models may present discontinuities in the right-hand side of the dynamics for multiple reasons, including topology changes and quantization. Several concepts of generalized solutions for discontinuous equations are available in the literature and are useful to analyze these models. In this chapter, we study Caratheodory and Krasovsky generalized solutions for discontinuous models of opinion dynamics with state dependent interactions. We consider two definitions of “bounded confidence” interactions, which we respectively call metric and topological: in the former, individuals interact if their opinions are closer than a threshold; in the latter, individuals interact with a fixed number of nearest neighbors. We compare the dynamics produced by the two kinds of interactions in terms of existence, uniqueness and asymptotic behavior of different types of solutions.
