This paper presents some experimental results on Axelrod model of culture dissemination. In this work, we will examine how the cultures spread over networks including small world networks, and finally how cultures end to evolve in the networks. The cultures refer individual features, each individual plays a role of culture dissemination with some probabilities and high similarities in the neighbors, and the behavior of dissemination just works as agents in the networks, where the agents are placed and fixed at the network verteces. We use three kinds of network graphs including random graphs, Watts-Strogatz graphs and Barab´asi-Albert graphs. Our experimental results show that the evolve processes to the ends of cultures are different and depending on the structures of networks.
