Figure 1

The initial preferences are spaced uniformly between 0 and 1. (a) The average dynamics of individual preferences (eight solid lines) and standard deviation and average absolute distance to the consensus value x* = 0.5 (two dashed lines). (b) The distribution of the time to consensus τ (defined as the time when the average absolute distance to x* drops below 1/10th of the initial value). 1000 runs, μ = 1.
