The outflow ranking method for weighted directed graphs

A ranking method assigns to every weighted directed graph a (weak) ordering of the nodes. In this paper we axiomatize the ranking method that ranks the nodes according to their outflow using four independent axioms. This outflow ranking method generalizes the ranking by outdegree for directed graphs. Furthermore, we compare our axioms with other axioms discussed in the literature.
