We derive an energy bound for inertial Hegselmann-Krause (HK) systems, which we define as a variant of the classic HK model in which the agents can change their weights arbitrarily at each step. We use the bound to prove the convergence of HK systems with closed-minded agents, which settles a conjecture of long standing. This paper also introduces anchored HK systems and show their equivalence to the symmetric heterogeneous model.
