The $25,000,000,000 Eigenvector

I am taking Math and Logic for Cognitive Science course this semester. We have been talking about linear algebra the past few weeks. The article my professor wanted us to read is by Prof. Bryan, in which he detailed how a simple idea from linear algebra can be turned into a powerful page ranking algorithm behind Google. The title of the article itself is the approximate market value of Google when the company went public in 2004 and Eigenvector concept from linear algebra.

I have to admit I am liking Maths more and more.
