Abstract:

The United States is becoming increasingly dependent on telecommunications to maintain societal structure. Today, the use of communication and computer networks has attained a level which affects all lives. The lost of these networks would have a monumental effect on the everyday lives of virtually every person in the U.S. and even the world. This thesis discusses network survivability which is considered to be a function of the number of independent parallel paths between a source and destination node. A methodology is developed to determine the connectivity of a network and then the number of independent parallel paths are determined by restricting the connectivity solution set. The capacity of the parallel paths are then maximized given that the links are not characterized by uniform capacities.
