Kemeny's constant and the random surfer
Levene, Mark and Loizou, George (2002) Kemeny's constant and the random surfer. American Mathematical Monthly 109 , pp. 741-745. ISSN 0002-9890.
We revisit Kemeny's constant in the context of Web navigation, also known as "surfing." We generalize the constant, derive upper and lower bounds on it, and give it a novel interpretation in terms of the number of links a random surfer will follow to reach his final destination.
