<p><b>Abstract</b>—A method of link analysis employed for retrieving information from the Web is extended in order to evaluate one aspect of quality in an object-oriented model. The principal eigenvectors of matrices derived from the adjacency matrix of a modified class diagram are used to identify and quantify heavily loaded portions of an object-oriented design that deviate from the principle of distributed responsibilities.</p>
