Abstract:

This report addresses the study of Network Adaptability from Weapons of Mass Destruction WMD Disruption and Cascading Failures. The research studies the problems of combating disruptions due to WMD C-WMD on networks, accounting for real-world dynamics on critical infrastructures that are vulnerable to such attacks. Our research examines new modes of attack that are relevant to WMD analysis, and considers networks that are overlays of several individually functioning but related structures such as telecommunications, transportation, and electricity grids.
