A model of opinion dynamics based on formal argumentation: application to the diffusion of the vegetarian diet (version 1.0.0)

This generic agent-based model simulates the evolution of agent’s opinions through their exchange of arguments. The idea behind this model is to explicitly represent the process of mental deliberation of agents from arguments to an opinion, through the use of Dung’s argumentation framework complemented by a structured description of arguments. An application of the model on the diffusion of vegetarian diets is proposed.

Release Notes

Model developed with GAMA 1.8.1 (release). It requires the installation of the Argumentation plugin, which can be directly downloaded and installed from GAMA 1.8.1 from the GAMA experimental p2 update site: http://updates.gama-platform.org/experimental
