Abstract: Ranking and clustering networked objects such as web pages in WWW and individuals in a society are important for many cutting-edge applications. For instance, search engine needs ranking the web pages based on importance. Additionally, finding clusters (aka community) in a social network is crucial for understanding the mechanism of a society. We applied our theory for ranking and clustering various networked objects including web pages in WWW and individuals in social networks. Both empirical evaluation and real application demonstrate a superior performance of our theory in wide areas.
