Most people know PageRank as Google’s algorithm for ranking search results, but it’s uses extend far beyond only that: PageRank has already been utilised for analysing social networks, finding the most important functions in source code, predicting traffic, and deriving a more accurate ranking table of teams in an ongoing sports competition. In this session we will cover the basics of linear algebra, developing an intuitive notion of how matrices and vectors interact, and use it to understand the principles of PageRank. Then we’ll jump straight into real-life applications of PageRank beyond web search and how these can be implemented in PHP using the math-php library.
