Chaos in a Simple Cellular Automaton Model of a Uniform Society
In this work we study the collective behavior in a model of a simplified homogeneous society. Each agent is modeled as a binary “perceptron”, receiving neighbors’ opinions as inputs and outputting one of two possible opinions, according to the conformist attitude and to the external pressure of mass media. For a neighborhood size greater than three, the system shows a very complex phase diagram, including a disordered phase and chaotic behavior. We present analytic calculations, mean fields approximation and numerical simulations for different values of the parameters.
