ABSTRACT 



The World Wide Web may be described as a very large graph, with web pages
as nodes and web hyperlinks as edges.  Mathematical analysis of this graph
has proven both enlightening and useful.  The PageRank algorithm, for
instance, has formed the basis of a successful commercial web search
engine.  In this talk I describe a variety of mathematics-based analyses
of the web, including PageRank.
