Module 28: Modeling Structural Balance in Networks

Faculty Contact: Francesco Bullo

Research Areas:

Abstract: This module will model the formation of structural balance in networks (i.e., networks with antagonistic relationships). Specifically, we explore a a dynamical system that models the evolution of a network of agents that converge to a final state with structural balance. The project includes the theoretical analysis of this model (fixed point analysis, convergence, structural analysis of the final network, etc.), as well as some numerical simulations.
