  • Networks that fail can sometimes recover spontaneously—think of traffic jams suddenly easing or people waking from a coma. A model for such recoveries reveals spontaneous ‘phase flipping’ between high-activity and low-activity modes, in analogy with first-order phase transitions near a critical point.
