Abstract

This study describes the use of adaptive temporal-causal networks to model and simulate the development of mutually interacting opinion states and connections between individuals in social networks. The focus is on adaptive networks combining the homophily principle with the more becomes more principle. The model has been used to analyse a data set concerning opinions about the use of alcohol and tobacco, and friendship relations. The achieved results provide insights in the potential of the approach.
