Quantum Modeling of Social Networks
This research aims at the application of the models extracted from the many-body quantum mechanics to describe social dynamics. It is intended to draw macroscopic characteristics of communities starting from the analysis of microscopic interactions with respect to the node model. In the aim to experiment the validity of the proposed mathematical model, the Q.NET project is intended to define an open-source platform able to model nodes and interactions of a network, to simulate its behaviour starting from specific defined models. Q.NET project will allow to visualize the macroscopic results emerging during the analysis and simulation phases through a digital representation of the social network.
