For our first Journal Club of the academic year we'll be talking about the Google PageRank algorithm, and related eigenvector problems in information retrieval.

An overview of PageRank can be found below:

A very nice survey with PageRank and other eigenvector-based web information retrieval algorithms may be found here:

Also - a quick explanation of the Power Method for computing eigenvalues/vectors
