Simulation of Galam's contrarian opinions on percolative lattices


  • Stauffer, D.
  • Sá Martins, J.S.


Galam's model of people voting always against the majority is shown to give for the quenched case different results than the original annealed model. For people diffusing on a lattice, Galam's phase transitions happen only at higher concentrations of people.
