# Wikipedia principal eigenvector#

A classical way to assert the relative importance of vertices in a graph is to compute the principal eigenvector of the adjacency matrix so as to assign to each vertex the values of the components of the first eigenvector as a centrality score:

On the graph of webpages and links those values are called the PageRank scores by Google.

The goal of this example is to analyze the graph of links inside wikipedia articles to rank articles by relative importance according to this eigenvector centrality.

The traditional way to compute the principal eigenvector is to use the power iteration method:

Here the computation is achieved thanks to Martinsson’s Randomized SVD algorithm implemented in scikit-learn.

The graph data is fetched from the DBpedia dumps. DBpedia is an extraction of the latent structured data of the Wikipedia content.
