    Abstract

    We investigate an opinion dynamics model with continuously defined affinities and opinions. We focus here on the effects of the social network's topology on the dynamical evolution and on the scale properties of the model measured through numerical simulations and fittings. We study different network topologies through a set of statistical network measures, namely mean path, mean degree and clustering. We observe that the model's dynamics eventually leads to a uniformisation of the different topologies.
