In this paper we study the problem of how resilient networks are to node faults. Specifically, we investigate the question of how many faults a network can sustain so that it still contains a large (i.e. linear-sized) connected component that still has approximately the same expansion as the original fault-free network. For this we apply a pruning technique which culls away parts of the faulty network which have poor expansion. This technique can be applied to both adversarial faults and to… CONTINUE READING
