About this book

Introduction

Ternary means “based on three”. This book deals with reliability investigations of  networks whose components subject to failures can be in three states –up, down and middle (mid), contrary to traditionally considered networks  having only binary (up/down) components. Extending binary case to ternary allows to consider more realistic and flexible models for communication, flow and supply networks.

Reviews

"This small book presents innovative results for ternary networks used in advanced reliability modeling. ... The theoretical developments and the potential application areas of this work make this book uniquely attractive to reliability and network science experts interested in small to medium size networks."(Professor Ron S. Kenett; Research Professor, University of Turin, Italy; International Professor, NYU Center for Risk Engineering, USA; Chairman and CEO, The KPA Group, Israel; May 2014)
