Percolation of localized attack on complex networks

  title={Percolation of localized attack on complex networks},
  author={Shuai Shao and Xuqing Huang and Harry Eugene Stanley and Shlomo Havlin},
The robustness of complex networks against node failure andmalicious attack has been of interest for decades, whilemost of the research has focused on randomattack or hub-targeted attack. Inmany real-world scenarios, however, attacks are neither randomnor hub-targeted, but localized, where a group of neighboring nodes in a network are attacked and fail. In this paper we develop a percolation framework to analytically and numerically study the robustness of complex networks against such… CONTINUE READING
