Abstract:

This report suggests reliability analysis that takes into account the traffic accommodation the networks ability to carry the required traffic in the case of component failures. Such analysis is motivated by networks that have predetermined requirements of critical traffic flow such as in military surveillance, data processing, and dissemination. In the course of the discussion, this report suggests computational algorithms that determine whether the network can carry the required traffic. This report also presents new reliability measures that are constructed from the standpoint of network accommodation. Such reliability measures are determined by both the network topology and the traffic demand.
