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 :) https://medium.com/fintechexplained/what-are-eigenvalues-and-eigenvectors-a-must-know-concept-for-machine-learning-80d0fd330e47
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. …
