PageRank algorithm is a link analysis algorithm and it assigns a numerical weighting to each element of a hyperlinked set of documents. It is famously known as one of the key algorithm of the initial prototype of the Google search engine. In this talk I will talk about the mathematical foundation of the algorithm. The main idea will include discrete Markov chain and linear algebra.
