Asymptotic Behaviors of an Opinion Dynamical System without or with a Leader

Ye Cheng, Xiao Wang, Xiongwei Liu
Abstract—Consensus problems of an opinion dynamical system without a leader and with a leader under CS and MT influence functions are studied and a simple proof to guarantee that an opinion dynamical system can reach a consensus is also obtained in this paper. Moreover, results show that the system with a leader reaches a consensus more slowly than that without a leader by numerical simulations.

Index Terms—Dini derivative, Lyapunov function, opinion consensus.
