# Spreading of localized attacks in spatial multiplex networks

@article{Vaknin2017SpreadingOL, title={Spreading of localized attacks in spatial multiplex networks}, author={Dana Vaknin and Michael M. Danziger and S. Havlin}, journal={ArXiv}, year={2017}, volume={abs/1704.00267} }

Many real-world multilayer systems such as critical infrastructure are interdependent and embedded in space with links of a characteristic length. They are also vulnerable to localized attacks or failures, such as terrorist attacks or natural catastrophes, which affect all nodes within a given radius. Here we study the effects of localized attacks on spatial multiplex networks of two layers. We find a metastable region where a localized attack larger than a critical size induces a nucleation… Expand
