The dynamics of trust networks


This project considers a network of interacting agents. Each agent has a certain trust (regarding a given issue), where the trust of each of the individual agents is affected by the trust of its neighbors. For various mechanisms, the trust dynamics are studied, with specific attention for the impact of the agents' network structure.
