Cascading Failures in Interdependent Systems: Impact of Degree Variability and Dependence
By Richard J. La
We study cascading failures in a system comprising interdependent networks/systems, in which nodes rely on other nodes both in the same system and in other systems to perform their function. The (inter-)dependence among nodes is modeled using a dependence graph, where the degree vector of a node determines the number of other nodes it can potentially cause to fail in each system through aforementioned dependency. In particular, we examine the impact of the variability and dependence properties of node degrees on the probability of cascading failures. We show that larger variability in node degrees hampers widespread failures in the system, starting with random failures. Similarly, positive correlations in node degrees make it harder to set off an epidemic of failures, thereby rendering the system more robust against random failures.

Call for Papers
Special Issue on Economics of Modern Networks
Submission deadline: 1 Sept. 2018. View PDF.
Many modern networks are becoming increasingly heterogeneous, dynamic, and complex. The need for smart and self-organizing network designs has become a central research issue in a variety of applications and scenarios. Proper economic mechanism design will go hand-in-hand with technology advances in solving many complex design and operation issues in these modern networks. This special issue solicits the state-of-art economic modeling and analysis results on a wide range of modern networks, such as Internet, wireless networks, energy networks, transportation networks, social networks and supply chain networks. We are particularly interested in contributions that can address issues in more than one type of networks.
