Examples of Network Analysis

This chapter presents three applications of the theory developed in previous chapters to practical analysis of network-type systems. The first section is a comparison of networks resilience under random attack on their nodes. It is shown that regular networks are considerably more resilient than randomly created networks having the same number of nodes and edges. The second section presents an example of predisaster reinforcement of highway/railway system based on locating and using the most influential (important) edges of the system. The third section presents reliability analysis of flow networks with randomly failing edges.
