Randomly evolving systems with components that interact with each other have been of great interest in research. In particular, in this talk, we will discuss interacting urn processes with reinforcement. We consider N interacting two-colour Friedman urns and discuss the synchronization limit and fluctuation theorems. Theinteraction model considered is such that the reinforcement of each urn depends on the fraction of balls of a particular colour in that urn as well as the overall fractionof balls of that colour in all urns combined. Further extensions and applications to understanding opinion dynamics on networks etc. will also be discussed.
