Math 445 lecture 8: Hamster dynamics, a.k.a. Google Page Rank

Have you ever wondered about the technology behind web searching? This lecture will present the idea behind the Google Page Rank algorithm, which forms the basis of Google's web search. In this lecture I'll lay out the idea and math in an analogy to hamsters running around in hamster house.

For a more serious explanation please see this article in the Notices of the American Mathematical Society .
