# Nonlocal PageRank

@article{Cipolla2020NonlocalP, title={Nonlocal PageRank}, author={Stefano Cipolla and Fabio Durastante and Francesco Tudisco}, journal={ArXiv}, year={2020}, volume={abs/2001.10421} }

In this work we introduce and study a nonlocal version of the PageRank. In our approach, the random walker explores the graph using longer excursions than just moving between neighboring nodes. As a result, the corresponding ranking of the nodes, which takes into account a \textit{long-range interaction} between them, does not exhibit concentration phenomena typical of spectral rankings which take into account just local interactions. We show that the predictive value of the rankings obtained…

Mathematics, Computer Science

ArXiv

This work shows how to compute the average number of steps a non- backtracking walker takes to reach a specific node starting from a given node and shows that mean return times for non-backtracking random walks coincide with their analogue for random walks in all finite, undirected graphs in which both stochastic processes are well-defined.
