Convergence of majority dynamics
Omer Tamuz, Assistant Professor, Economics/Mathematics, Caltech,

We study a process in which members of a social network update their opinions to match those of the majority of their neighbors; this process is also known (on odd degree graphs) as zero temperature Glauber Dynamics. We show some convergence results and propose a number of open questions.

Joint with Ran Tessler
