The talk will center around a set of recent results on the analysis of Google’s PageRank algorithm on directed complex networks. In particular, it  will focus on the so-called power-law hypothesis, which states that the distribution of the ranks produced by PageRank on a scale-free graph (whose in-degree distribution follows a power-law) also follows a power-law with the same tail-index as the...
