Abstract [en]

In this paper, we discuss the possible generalizations of the Social Influence with Recurrent Mobility (SIRM) model developed in Phys. Rev. Lett. 112, 158701 (2014). Although the SIRM model worked approximately satisfying when US election was modelled, it has its limits: it has been developed only for two-party systems and can lead to unphysical behaviour when one of the parties has extreme vote share close to 0 or 1. We propose here generalizations to the SIRM model by its extension for multi-party systems that are mathematically well-posed in case of extreme vote shares, too, by handling the noise term in a different way. In addition, we show that our method opens new applications for the study of elections by using a new calibration procedure, and makes possible to analyse the influence of the "free will" (creating a new party) and other local effects for different commuting network topologies.
