Multiple nodes having the exact same PageRank values are not
necessarily a cause for concern - there could be logical explanations
for it. For instance, any "source" vertex in a directed graph has the
exact same PageRank value due to the fact that these vertices have no
inbound edges, so the only way the random walk can reach them is via
teleportation - and teleportation to a certain node has a well-defined
probability that comes straight from the damping parameter and the
number of nodes in the graph.
