Jeff works primarily with MATLAB to implement his mathematical algorithms.
Each time we use Google, we ask Google's search engine to produce a list of websites closely matching information relevant to our search. This talk is an introduction to Google's search methods with a focus on the mathematical background of the PageRank algorithm. It is recommended that audience members have finished courses in Calculus, Linear Algebra and Numerical Analysis.
