A Dynamical System for PageRank with Time-Dependent Teleportation

In short, a library for computing dynamic pagerank. See [1] and [2] for further details.

These codes are research prototypes and may not work for you. No promises. But do email if you run into problems.


Unzip data into dynamic_pagerank directory


Start matlab in the directory where you unzipped the file

$ matlab
>> setup_paths
>> load('data/wiki-24hours');

This should work on Mac OSX (Lion tested) and Ubuntu linux (10.10 tested) with Matlab R2011a.

>> v = normcols(v);
>> X = dynamic_pagerank(A,v);

See examples.m for additional examples

Please let us know if you run into any issues.


The package is organized by directory

/ : All of the main matlab codes (dynamic_pagerank.m,...)

ranking : dynamic ranking codes and figures

forecasting : simple models for prediction using Dynamic PageRank

clustering : experimental codes for identifying trends and similar vertices

causality : codes for computing Granger causality between vertices

data : graphs, precomputed data, and script files for extracting and parsing page views

web : this information and all the figures
