Page Rank (simplified) in MATLAB for the classroom

I am currently doing a university tour as part of my role in Applications Engineering, so I have been thinking about the educational uses of MATLAB. Find me next week at University of North Texas and Texas A&M.

I liked this simplified Page Rank algorithm that was posted here at MATLAB Central File Exchange.

This struck me because it had an interesting animation that helped to clarify the convergence of “popularity” in a simple network. I thought I could make an intuitive guess as to the answers, but I was wrong even on this simple network. Along with a good visualization, this included reference for more information and built off of previous work by Cleve himself (Cleve Moler, “The World’s First MATLAB programmer!).
