SimRank: A Measure of Structural-Context Similarity

A college pointed my to a paper from KDD 2002 called SimRank: A Measure of Structural-Context Similarity. It describes an inter-instance similarity measure that measures similarity of the structural (graph-based) context in which instances occur, based on their relationships with other instances. In other words, such instances are assumed to be similar if they are related to similar instances and so on…
I also added the paper to the literature list.
