Title: Dynamics in Social Networks:Consensus vs. Cleavage
Prof. S. Lakshmivarahan, University of Oklahoma
Date & Time: July 17, 2017 17:00
Venue: Conference Room, C Block, 01st Floor, Dept. of CSE, Kanwal Rekhi (KReSIT) Bldg.
This talk will provide an overview of different classes of algorithms for dynamic models interacting in a directed weighted graphs for opinion formation - consensus vs. cleavage. Conditions for the convergence of these algorithms which critically depend on the topological properties of the underlying graphs will be discussed. These algorithms have applications to the control of a system of interacting robots.
