ABSTRACT
The rank of an object is its relative importance to the other objects in the set. Often a rank is an integer assigned from the set 1,...,n. A ranking model is a method of determining a way in which the ranks are assigned. Usually a ranking model uses information available on the objects to determine their respective ratings. The most recognized application of ranking is the competitive sports. Numerous ranking models have been created over the years to compute the team ratings for various sports. In this paper we propose a flexible, easily coded, fast, iterative approach we call the Offense-Defense Model (ODM), to generating team ratings. The convergence of the ODM is grounded in the theory of matrix balancing.
