In this paper, we show a new technique to analyze families of rankings. In particular, we focus on sports rankings and, more precisely, on soccer leagues. We consider that two teams compete when they change their relative positions in consecutive rankings. This allows to define a graph by linking teams that compete. We show how to use some structural(More)
In this paper we introduce a new technique to analyze families of rankings focused on the study of structural properties of a new type of graphs. Given a finite number of elements and a family of rankings of those elements, we say that two elements compete when they exchange their relative positions in at least two rankings. This allows us to define an(More)
In this paper new results on personalized PageRank are shown. We consider directed graphs that may contain dangling nodes. The main result presented gives an analytical characterization of all the possible values of the personalized PageRank for any node.We use this result to give a theoretical justification of a recent model that uses the personalized(More)
