Abstract / Description:Social networks are dynamic: We make new friends and loose touch with
old ones, depending on the interactions with them. Most analytic studies of social
networks assume that links remain unchanged at all times. In this case, individuals
have no control over the number, frequency or duration of their interactions with
others. Here, we discuss analytical and numerical models in which individuals can
break links and create new ones. Interactions are modeled as general symmetric twoplayer
games. Once a link between two individuals has formed, the productivity of
this link is evaluated. Links can be broken off at different rates. In the limiting cases
where linking dynamics is much faster than evolutionary dynamics or vice-versa, the
system can be tackled analytically.We show how the individual capacity of forming
new links or severing inconvenient ones can change the nature of the game. If the
linking rules are local, numerical simulations show that networks emerge that have
several features of real-world social networks.
