M179: Graph Algorithms in Splash Spring 14 (Apr. 26, 2014)
PageRank is the algorithm Google was founded on. It tells you, roughly, how important a webpage is by looking at what other pages link to it, and when you search for something on Google, its PageRank is part of what determines the order of your results. Google accomplishes this by treating the web as a graph, a set of vertices and edges that connect them, and in this class you will learn about PageRank and a couple other neat graph algorithms. Other topics we might cover if there's time: Max flow (railway traffic or water in a water distribution network) algorithms, shortest path algorithms, algorithms used in video games.
