A Cyclic Representation of Discrete Coordination Procedures

Rafig Agaev, Pavel Chebotarev

We show that any discrete opinion pooling procedure with positive weights can be asymptotically approximated by DeGroot's procedure whose communication digraph is a Hamiltonian cycle with loops. In this cycle, the weight of each arc (which is not a loop) is inversely proportional to the influence of the agent the arc leads to.
