We investigate the problem of social/opinion networks of autonomous agents, each of which has a personal view that follows an independent dynamic behavior and it communicates with their neighbors under a cooperative algorithm. We apply mathematics from non-negative matrix theory. We investigate agents with identical and non-identical views and we establish sufficient conditions for stability and convergence to a common synchronized opinion.
