Abstract: Two agent-based stochastic models of social interaction are presented. The Axelrod model generalizes the voter model, and both can be analyzed via random walks. Justification is given for the indefinite persistence of competing groups, and conditions are given for the complete domination of one set of attitudes or traits.
