Dynamics of complex socio-technological network systems

Claudio Altafini, LiU & Emma Tegling, LU

This project investigates how opinions and beliefs propagate on “social networks”, i.e., on networks of individuals interacting over socio-technological media and influencing each other through social ties. The main scientific goal is to use data and dynamical models in order to understand the mechanisms by which sociologically relevant macroscopic collective behaviors can emerge from microscopic (i.e., individual-level) interactions.
