Multilayer Networks

Ginestra Bianconi

Oxford University Press

This chapter is devoted to opinion dynamics and game theory on multilayer networks. Since in social systems multilayer networks are the rule, it is particularly relevant to extend the modelling opinion dynamics to the multilayer network scenario. This chapter focuses in particular on the Voter Model, its variants, the Co-evolving Voter Model and models of competing networks, including election models showing that multiplexity has a major role in determining opinion dynamics. In particular, opinion dynamics on multilayer networks is not reducible to opinion dynamics on single layer networks. Finally, the rich interplay between structure and function in multilayer networks is discussed in the framework of game theory.

Keywords:   opinion dynamics, Voter Model, Co-Evolving Voter Model, competing networks, election model, game theory
