This repository contains the code of my attempt to replicate the results obtained in
. The scripts are all written in python and are heavily build around the libraries SciPy and NumPy. To install all the required packages with
pip run the following command in terminal
pip install -r requirements.txt
At the moment, the standard and shifted power method to compute the PageRank with multiple damping factors are fully implemented (as described in
). To run the program we need to execute the
main.py file. It takes as input two arguments:
--dataset: the options are
Stanford. This commands selects the web-graph to run the algorithms on.
--algo: the options are
both. If you choose the last option, it will first run the standard power method and then the shifted one.
Here an example of what’s described above.
./main.py --dataset Stanford --algo both
testing/ folder there are two python notebook that contains the attempt on replicating the results obtained in
 for the shifted GMRES method. The implementation of the Arnoldi process is fully working. On the other hand, there are several problems on the shifted GMRES algorithm that I can’t figure out.
