About this book

This book is devoted to the probabilistic description of a network in the process of its destruction, i.e. removal of its components (links, nodes) appearing as a result of technical failures, natural disasters or intentional attacks . It is focused on a practical approach to network reliability, based on application of Monte Carlo methodology to numerical evaluation of network most important structural parameters. This allows to obtain a probabilistic description of the network in the process of its destruction, to identify most important network components and to develop efficient heuristic algorithms for network optimal design. The methodology works with satisfactory accuracy and efficiency for small –to-medium size networks.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“The booklet is actually based on the research carried out by the authors … . this book has been written in a reader-friendly manner so as to be of practical use and is not overloaded with abstractions and proofs. … the students and teachers pursuing research in the area of communication reliability and reliability engineers dealing with design of communication networks would find this book very useful and helpful.” (Krishna B. Misra, International Journal of Performability Engineering, Vol. 8 (3), May, 2012)
