Estudo computacional sobre polarização ideológica
A dar uma olhada. Isso parece contar a história da polarização ideológica nos EUA e uma polarização similar, em menor escala, no Brasil.
Hate: no choice. Agent simulations
(Submitted on 19 Aug 2009)
We report our recent simulations on the social processes which -- in our opinion -- lie at the bottom of hate. First simulation deals with the so-called Heider balance where initial purely random preferences split the community into two mutually hostile groups. Second simulation shows that once these groups are formed, the cooperation between them is going to fail. Third simulation provides a numerical illustration of the process of biased learning; the model indicates that lack of objective information is a barrier to new information. Fourth simulation shows that in the presence of a strong conflict between communities hate is unavoidable.
