The model of scientific paradigms spreading throughout a community of agents with memory is analyzed using the master equation. The case of two competing ideas is considered for various networks of interactions,including agents placed at Erdos-Renyi graphs or complete graphs. The pace of adopting a new idea by the community is analyzed, along with the distribution of periods after which a new idea replaces the old one. The approach is extended for the chain topology to the more general case when more than two ideas compete. Our analytical results agree with the numerical simulations.
