|Abstract:||This paper extends the definition of an exact consensus complex social network to that of a near consensus complex social network. A near consensus complex social network is a social network with nontrivial topological features and steady state values of the decision certitudes of the majority of the nodes being either higher or lower than a threshold value. Based on this definition, the relationships among the vectors representing the steady state values of the decision certitudes of the nodes, the influence weight matrix of a near consensus complex social network and the set of vectors representing the initial state values of the decision certitudes of the nodes that satisfies a given near consensus specification are investigated. Finally, some practical examples of near consensus complex social networks are illustrated.|
