A survey of Eigenvector Methods for Web Information Retrieval

In the latest issue of SIAM Review (volume 47, no 1) (articles to be available online soon), I read a great paper for those who like mathematics and want a deeper understanding of how Google works. I knew how the PageRank algorithm worked, roughly, but I never imagined it was a true Linear Algebra algorithm. Of course, it is relatively simple as far as Linear Algebra goes, but still…
