Use the power method to rank the baseball league with the matrix(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

{ 1, .5, .5}

{.5, 1, 1/3}

{.5, 2/3, 1}

So I choose some random matrix which sum to one so

let x={.5,.3,.2}^T

So

{ 1, .5, .5}

{.5, 1, 1/3} {.5,.3,.2}^T= X[itex]_{1}[/itex]

{.5, 2/3, 1}

And I keep repeating this scaling the new x vector. Is there an easier way to do this or does it have to be done with technology?
