The publication versions the nation’s most precious actual resources and infrastructure sectors as networks of nodes and hyperlinks. It then analyzes the community to spot vulnerabilities and hazards within the quarter combining community technological know-how, complexity idea, modeling and simulation, and chance analysis.

The most crucial elements turn into the point of interest of deeper research and defense. This strategy reduces the complicated challenge of shielding water offers, power pipelines, telecommunication stations, net and net networks, and tool grids to a miles easier challenge of shielding a couple of serious nodes. the recent variation encompasses a broader choice of principles and sectors and strikes the mathematical subject matters into numerous appendices.
