(Bachelor’s programme)
The object of this senior thesis is a Friedkin-Johsnen Model of opinion dynamics.

Our main goal is to study the impact of random noise on model dynamics. Simulation

models of deterministic and stochastic and Friedkin-Jоhnsen models are implemented

in Python programming language. The paper analyses the simulation results, the

trajectory of the expectation of the vector of opinions with different strength of random

noise. It is shown that the system is not ergodic.
