I didn't dig deep into the source code, but I have
some questions:
1) Should the range of the damping factor be [0, 1],
i.e. damping could take == 0, or == 1.0, the boundary
value?
and src/structural_properties.c: line 1682 be changed
to:
if (damping< 0 || damping> 1) IGRAPH_ERROR("Invalid
damping factor", IGRAPH_EINVAL);
I made changed, and did some test: the first example
output of: examples/simple/igraph_pagerank.c
passing damping = 1.0, output: 0.00 0.00 0.00 0.00
passing damping = 0.0, output: 1.00 1.00 1.00 1.00
But by the formula on
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PageRank
is the answer wrong?
damping = 0.0, output all should be 1/N = 0.25?
damping = 1.0, output should be sum(pr(x)/l(x))?
2) in the examples/simple/igraph_pagerank.c, is there
any way I can specify weight of each edge? (not just
connectivity, but also the *weight* of each edge?)
3) how the pagerank calculation is actually
implemented?
-- is it by performing (niter) number of iterations?
-- or by solving the eigenvector of the adjacency
matrix?
I suspect it's done by iterations; if this is true, is
there any plan to actual solve the eigenvector of the
adjacency matrix in the future?
Thanks!
