Abstract

In this paper, we present a formal model of opinion diffusion among agents which influence each other. Opinions are modelled as propositional formulas or equivalently, as sets of logical interpretations, which allows us to express some kind of uncertainty. Any agent changes its opinion by merging the opinions of its influencers, from the most influential one to the least one. Then we generalize this model by taking topics of opinion into account.
