Abstract:
Structural balance in social networks, viz., the idea that agents adapt central idea of social psychology from the time it was introduced by Fritz 1950s. It is closely allied to the concept of frustration in spin systems,triangular lattice in 1950 and later more extensively by others in the  spin networks), we have a studied a process where interaction strengths dynamics is inspired by Hebb’s principle, originally proposed in the which may apply more broadly to a large class of systems, e.g., in gene
regulation networks where the co-expression of genes has been

suggested to result fluctuations, the time required to converge to the balanced state exhibits  suggest that fluctuations can prevent a system from attaining a balanced important implications for biological and social networks. More transition from balance to frustration during the onset of major systemic network dynamics indicative of such pan-sector economic collapses.
