From the spreading of diseases and memes to the development of opinions and

social influence, dynamical processes are influenced heavily by the networks

on which they occur. In this talk, I'll discuss social influence and opinion models

on networks. I'll present a few types of models --- including threshold models

of social contagions, voter models that coevolve with network structure, and

bounded-confidence models with continuous opinions --- and illustrate how such

processes are affected by the networks on which they occur.

I'll also connect these models to opinion polarization and the development of

echo chambers in online social networks.
