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.
Coupled distribution grids are more vulnerable to a cascading systemic failure but they have larger safe regions within their networks.
When networks come under attack, a repairable architecture is superior to, and globally distinct from, an architecture that is robust.
The interplay between redundancies and smart reconfiguration protocols can improve the resilience of networked infrastructures to failures.
Fractal structures need very little mass to support a load; but for current designs, this makes them vulnerable to manufacturing errors.
The optimal architecture of a financial system is only dependent on its topology when the market is illiquid, and no topology is always superior.
Information about 10% of the links in a complex network is sufficient to reconstruct its main features and resilience with the fitness model.
