Book Title: Fragile Networks: Identifying Vulnerabilities and Synergies in an Uncertain World

Author: Anna Nagurney, Qiang Qiang

Book Description:

This book summarizes my research in the network vulnerability area. In this book, we conceptualize, define, and construct mathematically rigorous, computer-based tools for the assessment of network performance and efficiency, along with robustness and vulnerability analysis. The result is a thorough exploration that promotes an understanding of the critical infrastructure of today's network systems, from congested urban transportation networks and supply chain networks under disruption to financial networks and the Internet.
