The main goal for this project is to study the influence of the network's topology in classical models, such as the election model and the spreading of diseases, based on theoretical models as the Sznajd model for the first, and the susceptible infectious (SI) and the susceptible infectious recovered (SIR) models for the last. The study will be done by simulating the models in networks with different topologies such as lattices, Barabasi-Albert network and Erdos-Renyi network. (AU)
