Langville and Meyer : Deeper Inside

  title={Langville and Meyer : Deeper Inside},
  author={Amy Nicole Langville and Carl Dean Meyer},
This paper serves as a companion or extension to the “Inside PageRank” paper by Bianchini et al. [Bianchini et al. 03]. It is a comprehensive survey of all issues associated with PageRank, covering the basic PageRank model, available and recommended solution methods, storage issues, existence, uniqueness, and convergence properties, possible alterations to the basic model, suggested alternatives to the traditional solution methods, sensitivity and conditioning, and finally the updating problem… 

Figures from this paper


The effect of the back button in a random walk: application for pagerank
An enhanced version of the PageRank algorithm using a realistic model for the back button, and it is shown that when m=1, the computation of this Back PageRank can be as fast as that of a standard PageRank.
Inside PageRank
A circuit analysis is introduced that allows to understand the distribution of the page score, the way different Web communities interact each other, the role of dangling pages (pages with no outlinks), and the secrets for promotion of Web pages.
Link Analysis, Eigenvectors and Stability
This paper addresses the question of when HITS and PageRank can be expected to give stable rankings under small perturbations to the hyperlink patterns, using tools from matrix perturbation theory and Markov chain theory.
Decomposition of the Google PageRank and Optimal Linking Strategy
It is shown that there exists an optimal linking strategy that benefits a user with links inside its Web community and in contrast inappropriate links penalize the Web users and their Web communities.
Modifications of Kleinberg's HITS algorithm using matrix exponentiation and web log records
Two modifications to the adjacency matrix input to the HITS algorithm are presented, which weights links according to how often they were followed by users in a given time period and incorporates user feedback without requiring direct user querying.
Stable algorithms for link analysis
The analysis is extended and it is shown how it gives insight into ways of designing stable link analysis methods and motivates two new algorithms, whose performance is studied empirically using citation data and web hyperlink data.
Improved algorithms for topic distillation in a hyperlinked environment
This paper addresses the problem of topic distillation on the World Wide Web, namely, given a typical user query to find quality documents related to the query topic, by augmenting a previous connectivity analysis based algorithm with content analysis.
A new paradigm for ranking pages on the world wide web
This paper describes a new paradigm for modeling traffic levels on the world wide web using a method of entropy maximization, and specifically applies the primal and dual solutions of this model to the (static) ranking of web sites.
PageRank, HITS and a unified framework for link analysis
This work proves that rankings produced by PageRank and HITS are both highly correlated with the ranking by in-degree and out-degree.
