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. |
