Abstract We present Wikipedia Ranking of World Universities (WRWU) based on analysis of networks of 24 Wikipedia editions collected in May 2017. With PageRank and CheiRank algorithms we determine ranking of universities averaged over cultural views of these editions. The comparison with the Shanghai ranking gives overlap of 60% for top 100 universities showing that WRWU gives more significance to their historical development. We show that the new reduced Google matrix algorithm allows to… 
Mining the World University Rankings from Wikipedia
Global university rankings have played a growing role in the competition for status which has become one of the important evaluation conditions of higher education quality. At present, the evaluation
What is the central bank of Wikipedia?
World Influence of Infectious Diseases from Wikipedia Network Analysis
The reduced Google matrix method is used to determine the sensitivity of world countries to specific diseases integrating their influence over all their history including the times of ancient Egyptian mummies, demonstrating that the Wikipedia network analysis provides reliable results.
Interactions of pharmaceutical companies with world countries, cancers and rare diseases from Wikipedia network analysis
Using the English Wikipedia network of more than 5 million articles, a compact description of interactions between these articles is provided that allows us to determine the friendship networks between them, as well as the PageRank sensitivity of countries to pharmaceutical companies and rare renal diseases.
What is the central bank ofWikipedia?
We analyze the influence and interactions of 60 largest world banks for 195 world countries using the reduced Google matrix algorithm for the English Wikipedia network with 5 416 537 articles. While
Wikipedia network analysis of cancer interactions and world influence
It is argued that this analysis of knowledge accumulated in Wikipedia provides useful complementary global information about interdependencies between cancers, drugs and world countries.
Novel version of PageRank, CheiRank and 2DRank for Wikipedia in Multilingual Network using Social Impact
This paper proposes a new model for the PageRank, CheiRank and 2DRank algorithm based on the use of clickstream and pageviews data in the google matrix construction based on data from Wikipedia and analysed links between articles from 11 language editions.
Collective intelligence defines biological functions in Wikipedia as communities in the hidden protein connection network
The results of Wikipedia protein community analysis and annotation are recapitulate in the form of an interactive online map, which can serve as a portal to the Gene Wiki project.
PageRank computation for Higher-Order Networks
This study focuses on the variable-order network model introduced in [12,10], and proposes an adaptation of the PageRank model in order to correct a bias due to the distribution of the number of representations of items.

Wikipedia ranking of world universities
The directed networks between articles of 24 Wikipedia language editions are used for producing the wikipedia ranking of world Universities (WRWU) using PageRank, 2DRank and CheiRank algorithms to incorporate various cultural views on world universities using the mathematical statistical analysis independent of cultural preferences.
Time evolution of Wikipedia network ranking
It is shown that PageRank selection is dominated by politicians while 2DRank, which combines PageRank and CheiRank, gives more accent on personalities of arts.
Interactions of Cultures and Top People of Wikipedia from Ranking of 24 Language Editions
Considering historical figures who appear in multiple editions as interactions between cultures, a network of cultures is constructed and the most influential cultures are identified according to this network.
Wikipedia mining of hidden links between political leaders
It is argued that the reduced Google matrix method can form the mathematical basis for studies in social and political sciences analyzing Leader-Members eXchange (LMX) and allows to recover reliably direct and hidden links among political leaders.
Interactions and Influence of World Painters From the Reduced Google Matrix of Wikipedia Networks
It is shown that it is possible to extract from the components of the reduced Google matrix meaningful information on the ties between painters and that this approach gives meaningful information about art and that it could be a part of extensive network analysis on human knowledge and cultures.
Capturing the influence of geopolitical ties from Wikipedia with reduced Google matrix
This work reveals the potential of Wikipedia mining for geopolitical study by leveraging a novel stochastic matrix representation of Markov chains of complex directed networks called the reduced Google matrix theory.
Analysis of world terror networks from the reduced Google matrix of Wikipedia
The reduced Google matrix method is applied to analyze interactions between 95 terrorist groups and determine their relationships and influence on 64 world countries to determine the geopolitical sensitivity and influence of specific terrorist groups on world countries.
Robust clustering of languages across Wikipedia growth
It is shown that, while an average article follows a random path from one language to another, there exist six well-defined clusters of Wikipedias that share common growth patterns, and the make-up of these clusters is remarkably robust against the method used for their determination, as it is verified via four different clustering methods.
Google matrix analysis of directed networks
This review describes the Google matrix analysis of directed complex networks demonstrating its efficiency on various examples including World Wide Web, Wikipedia, software architecture, world trade, social and citation networks, brain neural networks, DNA sequences and Ulam networks.
On the internal dynamics of the Shanghai ranking
It is proposed that the utility and usability of the ARWU could be greatly improved by replacing the unwanted dynamical effects of the annual re-scaling based on raw scores of the best performers.
