    Abstract

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