Which Bank is the "Central" Bank? An Application of Markov Theory to the Canadian Large Value Transfer SystemWe use a method similar to Google's PageRank procedure to rank banks in the Canadian Large Value Transfer System (LVTS). Along the way we obtain estimates of the payment processing speeds for the individual banks.
