Volltext auf 'Open Access LMU' nicht verfügbar.


We present a study of the spreading of trends in artificial social influence networks using agent based models. We concentrate on basic properties of the agents which describe their individual attitudes towards a trend, as well as the influence which they exert in their social neighbourhood. Using a simple random network, we investigate the impact of network dynamicity, situations of opposing trends, and the disappearance of trends. A 'community' network is used to study the impact of group cohesiveness and connectors for the spreading of trends in social communities.
