Analyzing the Structure of Wikipedia (LTHI)

 

Objective

The aim of this project is to analyze the structure of a large existing web graph such as Wikipedia with roughly $N = 6$ million nodes and $E = 200$ million edges. Spectral algorithms exist for such tasks, but their runtime $O(N^3)$ is prohibitive for the above application. Various methods have been developed for tackling this issue. We aim at studying and implementing some of these.
