The effect of node failures in substar reliability of a star network- A combinatorial approach

Document Type

Conference Proceeding


The star graph is a hierarchical graph, and rich in containing substars (or graphs with smaller size but with the same topological properties as the original). Given a set of faulty nodes, we determine the ability to recover substars of a given dimension from the original network. A study of the number of faulty nodes that are required to damage every subnetwork of a given size is also presented.
