2 PageRank rhombus6 Intuition : solve the recursive equation: “a page is important if important pages link to it.” rhombus6 In high-falutin’ terms: importance = the principal eigenvector of the stochastic matrix of the Web. rhombus4 A few fixups needed.

3 Stochastic Matrix of the Web rhombus6 Enumerate pages. rhombus6 Page i corresponds to row and column i . rhombus6 M [ i , j ] = 1/ n if page j links to n pages, including page i ; 0 if j does not link to i . rhombus4 M [ i,j ] is the probability we’ll next be at page i if we are now at page j .

5 Random Walks on the Web rhombus6 Suppose v is a vector whose i th component is the probability that we are at page i at a certain time. rhombus6 If we follow a link from i at random, the probability distribution for the page we are then at is given by the vector M v .

6 Random Walks --- (2) rhombus6 Starting from any vector v , the limit M ( M (… M ( M v ) …)) is the distribution of page visits during a random walk. rhombus6 Intuition : pages are important in proportion to how often a random walker would visit them. rhombus6 The math : limiting distribution = principal eigenvector of M = PageRank .

8 Simulating a Random Walk rhombus6 Start with the vector v = [1,1,…,1] representing the idea that each Web page is given one unit of importance . rhombus6 Repeatedly apply the matrix M to v , allowing the importance to flow like a random walk. rhombus6 Limit exists, but about 50 iterations is sufficient to estimate final distribution.
