Abstract:

A game theoretical approach of situations in opinion making is presented. The opinions of the members are supposed to be expressed under internal and external pressures which take into account the sincerity of the members and their authority influence. Different cases are considered and conditions for the existence of equilibrium points are derived. Furthermore in the last section, by using the contraction principle in metric spaces, a sufficient condition for the existence of one equilibrium point in a general game is presented. Some examples are outlined.
