Our papers are the official record of our discoveries. They allow others to build on and apply our work. Each paper is the result of many months of research, so we make a special effort to make them clear, beautiful and inspirational, and publish them in leading journals.

    Cascades in flow networks

    Coupled distribution grids are more vulnerable to a cascading systemic failure but they have larger safe regions within their networks.

  • Easily repairable networks: reconnecting nodes after damage

    RFR. FarrJHTFT. Fink Physical Review Letters

    Easily repairable networks

    When networks come under attack, a repairable architecture is superior to, and globally distinct from, an architecture that is robust.

  • Self-healing networks: redundancy and structure

    WQGCG. CaldarelliASA. Scala PLOS ONE

    Self-healing complex networks

    The interplay between redundancies and smart reconfiguration protocols can improve the resilience of networked infrastructures to failures.

  • Imperfections in a two-dimensional hierarchical structure

    DRYMRFR. Farr Physical Review E

    Structural imperfections

    Fractal structures need very little mass to support a load; but for current designs, this makes them vulnerable to manufacturing errors.

    Default cascades in networks

    The optimal architecture of a financial system is only dependent on its topology when the market is illiquid, and no topology is always superior.

  • Journal of Statistical Physics

    Bootstrapping topology and risk

    Information about 10% of the links in a complex network is sufficient to reconstruct its main features and resilience with the fitness model.
