Abstract: 

Given an initial opinion matrix in which every member of a population gives an opinion score of all the members in a population, natural questions to ask could be regarding what happens to those opinions over time, both in forward time and in backward time. While what happens over time depends on some underlying assumptions about what model to use, in this paper, we'll look at some common models, relate them to differential geometry, and show how some of these ideas can be extended further.
