What do social networks, belief propagation, spring embedders, cellular automata, distributed message passing algorithms, traffic networks, the brain, biological cell systems, or ant colonies have in common? They are all examples of \"Networks\", where the entities of the network are continuously influenced by the states of their respective neighbors. All of these examples of Influence Networks (INs) are known to be difficult to analyze. Some of the applications mentioned are notorious to have long-standing open problems regarding convergence.
