## Abstract

In this note we study multivariate perturbations of algebraic equations. In general, it is not possible to represent the perturbed solution as a Puiseux-type power series in a connected neighborhood. For the case of two perturbation parameters we provide a sufficient condition that guarantees such a representation. Then, we extend this result to the case of more than two perturbation parameters. We motivate our study by the perturbation analysis of a weighted random walk on the Web Graph. In an instance of the latter the stationary distribution of the weighted random walk, the so-called Weighted PageRank, may depend on two (or more) perturbation parameters in a manner that illustrates our theoretical development.
