Research on Rumors Spread Based on Cellular Automata
This paper studies the phenomenon of rumors spread based on the modeling theory of cellular automata (CA). We define two parameters which is called trust degree among cells and spread intention of cell and establish the rumors spread evolution model. Compared with the previous propagation model, it can demonstrate the propagation of rumors in the interpersonal networks clearly. We can observe and analyze the influence of propagation effects by adjusting the parameters. Simulation results show that the different distribution of parameters has a certain influence on rumors spread and the diffusion degree of rumors will decrease with the increase of the variance of trust degree and spread intention.
