The 400 Billion Dollar Algorithm

Luis Solis-Bruno*, University of Washington Tacoma (Undergraduate Student)
Talk Abstract: 
PageRank is an algorithm used by Google to present the user with the most important, helpful, or relevant pages first when they enter keywords or phrases into the search engine. We will introduce the algorithm, highlight key subjects of Linear and Matrix Algebra the algorithm implements, and run through an example. Subjects that will be covered include Eigenvectors and Eigenvalues. This project originated from a linear algebra course at the University of Washington Tacoma campus and was conducted primarily independent from class.
