Networks of networks are vulnerable: a failure in one sub-network can bring the rest crashing down. Previous simulations have suggested that randomly positioned networks might offer some limited robustness under certain circumstances. Analysis now shows, however, that real-world interdependent networks, where nodes are positioned according to geographical constraints, might not be so resilient.
