CHANS with Opinion Dynamics Tyson, Rebecca


CHANS models frequently incorporate the human component using a game theoretic framework. In this work, we present a different approach where opinion dynamics are modeled explicitly, giving us access to social behaviours such as amplification and polarization. We study the behaviour of the opinion dynamics in isolation, and then couple them to disease dynamics to study the interaction between the two. We propose that our approach allows for the inclusion of human behaviours that are difficult to access via traditional CHANS modelling, and that might have important consequences for the management of ecological systems.
