The construction of a diffusion process on the graph is a classical topic in spectral graph theory [weighted graph Lapla-cian normalization (8)], and the procedure consists in renor-malizing the kernel k(x, y) as follows: for all x X, let v x X k x, y d y, and set a x, y k x, y v ix.

Schur complements, effective resistance and some of their applications. The general theme is then, ï¬rstly, to compute or estimate the eigenvalues of such matrices, and secondly, to relate the eigenval- ues to structural properties of graphs.
