Abstract

This article introduces a game theoretic approach for allocating protection resources among the components of a network so as to maximize its robustness to external disruptions. Specifically, we consider shortest-path networks where disruptions may result in traffic flow delays through the affected components or in the complete loss of some elements. A multi-level program is proposed to identify the set of components to harden so as to minimize the length of the shortest path between a supply node and a demand node

approach to variations of the problem parameters, such as the level of disruption and protective resources, and the distribution of the arc lengths and delays.
