- We propose a mathematical model for opinion formation in a society that is built of two groups, one group of ‘ordinary’ people and one group of ‘strong opinion leaders’
- Our approach is based on an opinion formation model introduced in Toscani
- Starting from microscopic interactions among individuals, we arrive at a macroscopic description of the opinion formation process that is characterized by a system of Fokker–Planck-type equations
