Analyzing the reliability of degradable networks
- 15 Downloads
The reachability of a strongly connected network may be destroyed after link damage. Since many networds have directed links with the potential for reversal, the reachability may be restored by reversing the direction of links. In this paper, the reliability of a network that allows reversal of links is discussed.
