An An+l A.; ,ilc) The mean weight of a path is defined as the sum of the weights of the individual arcs of this path, divided by the length of this path. If the path is denoted p, then the mean weight equals If such a path is a circuit one talks about the mean weight of the circuit, simply the cycle mean. If G(A) is strongly connected, there exists one and only one eigenvalue (but possibly several eigenvectors). This eigenvalue is equal to the maximum cycle mean of the graph: P where p ranges over the set of circuits of G(A).
