March Madness: Building a Competitive Ranking System

March Madness: Building a Competitive Ranking System

Goal:

Write a program that rank college basketball teams using the outcomes from past games.

Assignment details:

We will use some techniques from linear algebra along with publicly-accessible data from college basketball games to construct a ranking system for college basketball teams. The system can be used to provide meaningful comparisons even between teams that have not played each other.

Your program will read game information from a file to construct a linear system of equations, then solve the system using functions from the Eigen linear algebra library.
