Albion College Mathematics and Computer Science Colloquium



Title: The $25,000,000,000 Eigenvector
Speaker:Dawn Archey
Assistant Professor of Mathematics
Mathematics and Software Engineering
University of Detroit Mercy
Detroit, MI
Abstract: This talk will describe the mathematics behind Google's page rank algorithm. We will see how Google sets up and solves an eigenvector problem to decide which of the web pages containing your search terms are most relevant. The talk will also touch briefly on graph theory and computational complexity.
