Distributed Time Synchronization Algorithms and Opinion Dynamics

Journal of Physics: Conference Series. 2018. Vol. 955. No. 012038. P. 1-6.

We propose new deterministic and stochastic models for synchronization of clocks in nodes of distributed networks. An external accurate time server is used to ensure convergence of the node clocks to the exact time. These systems have much in common with mathematical models of opinion formation in multiagent systems. There is a direct analogy between the time server/node clocks pair in asynchronous networks and the leader/follower pair in the context of social network models.
