Presentation Transcript
  • Created by Lempel Moran in 2000
  • Combination of HITS and PageRank
salsa s similarities to hits and pagerank
SALSA’s similarities to HITS and PageRank
  • SALSA uses authority and hub score
  • SALSA creates a neighborhood graph using authority and hub pages and links
salsa s differences between hits and pagerank
SALSA’s differences between HITS and PageRank
  • The SALSA method create a bipartite graph of the authority and hub pages in the neighborhood graph.
  • One set contains hub pages
  • One set contains authority pages
  • Each page may be located in both sets
markov chains
Markov Chains
  • Two matrices formed from bipartite graph G
  • A hub Markov chain with matrix H
  • An authority Markov chain with matrix A
where does salsa fit in
Where does SALSA fit in?
  • Matrices H and A can be derived from the adjacency matrix L used in the HITS and PageRank methods
  • HITS used unweighted matrix L
  • PageRank uses a row weighted version of matrix L
  • SALSA uses both row and column weighting
how are h and a computed
How are H and A computed?
  • Let Lrbe L with each nonzero row divided by its row sum
  • let Lcbe L with each nonzero column divided by its column sum
H, SALSA’s hub matrix, consists of the nonzero rows and columns of LrLcT
  • A, SALSA’s authority matrix,consists of the nonzero rows and columns of LcTLr
  • Av = λv
  • vTA = λ vT
  • Numerically: Power Method
the power method
The Power Method
  • Xk+1 = AXk
  • Xk+1T = XkTA
  • Converges to the dominant eigenvector

( λ = 1).

the power method16
The Power Method
  • Matrices H and A must be irreducible for the power method to converge to a unique eigenvector given any starting value
  • If our neighborhood graph G is connected, then both H and A are irreducible
  • If G is not connected, then performing the power method on H and A will not result in the convergence to a unique dominant eigenvector
our graph is not connected
Our Graph is not connected!
  • In our example it is clear to see that the graph is not connected as page 2 in the hub set is only connected to page 1 in the authority set and vice versa.
  • H and A are reducible and therefore contain multiple irreducible connected components
connected components
Connected Components
  • H contains two connected components, C = {2} and D = {1, 3, 6, 10}
  • A contains two connected components, E = {1} and F = {3, 5, 6}
cutting and pasting part i
Cutting and Pasting. Part I
  • We can now perform the power method on each component for H and A
cutting and pasting part ii
Cutting and Pasting. Part II
  • We can now paste the two components together for each matrix
  • We must multiply each entry in the vector by its appropriate weight



strengths and weaknesses
Strengths and Weaknesses
  • Not affected as much my topic drift like HITS
  • It gives authority and hub scores.
  • Handles spamming better than HITS, but not near as good as PageRank
  • query dependence
