Abstract

We consider an opinion dynamics game in a social network with two influence nodes. Pursuing certain goals, the influence nodes affect other members of the network by the selection of their levels of influence. Considering this model as a 2-person non-cooperative dynamic game and choosing Nash equilibrium as its solution, we find the equilibrium levels of influence for both influence nodes at any game stage. We also perform the numerical simulation for both low and high levels of players’ influence on agents.
