Surprising applications of a simple Graph Concept

This article is a riff off of Mark Newman’s Textbook Networks, and its section on the Graph Laplacian. Here I will walk you through the concept and demonstrate its utility with some coding experiments.

Warning: The following contains Eigenvalues and Eigenvectors, If you are unfamiliar here’s a primer :)

The Graph Laplacian

The Laplacian is a commonly used tool in the study of Networks. Its a matrix whose values represent the connections of the Network it represents. …
