A Google matrix is a particular stochastic matrix that is used by Google's PageRank algorithm. The matrix represents a graph with edges representing links between pages. The rank of each page can be generated iteratively from the Google matrix using the power method. However, in order for the power method to converge, the matrix must be stochastic, irreducible and aperiodic.
Famous quotes containing the word matrix:
“The matrix is God?
In a manner of speaking, although it would be more accurate ... to say that the matrix has a God, since this beings omniscience and omnipotence are assumed to be limited to the matrix.
If it has limits, it isnt omnipotent.
Exactly.... Cyberspace exists, insofar as it can be said to exist, by virtue of human agency.”
—William Gibson (b. 1948)
