Abstract

In this dissertation, the interplay between geographic information about the network and the principal properties and structure of the underlying graph are used to quantify the structural and functional survivability of the network. This work focuses on the local aspect of survivability by studying the propagation of loss in the network as a function of the distance of the fault from a given origin-destination node pair.
