Spatial opinion separation in social systems with stochastically moving agents
- Event time: 11:30am
- Event date: 29th April 2015
- Speaker: Jérôme Michaud (University of Edinburgh)
- Location: Room 2511, James Clerk Maxwell Building (JCMB) James Clerk Maxwell Building Peter Guthrie Tait Road Edinburgh EH9 3FD GB
In a previous talk I have discuss the problem of opinion separation in a population using a mean-field approach. In this talk, I will recover some of the mean field results and generalize them using moving Brownian agents. The study of the stability of the evolution equation of the spatial density of agents sharing an opinion will shed more light on the type of transition that occurs.

This is a roughly weekly series of didactical blackboard talks focussing on some theoretical aspect of Condensed Matter, Biological, and Statistical Physics..
