Abstract

LOTERO VELEZ, Laura  and  HURTADO HEREDIA, Rafael Germán. VULNERABILITY OF COMPLEX NETWORKS AND URBAN TRANSPORTATION APPLICATIONS: A LITERATURE REVIEWVULNERABILIDADE DE REDES COMPLEXAS E APLICAÇÕES AO TRANSPORTE URBANO: UMA REVISÃO DA LITERATURA. Rev.EIA.Esc.Ing.Antioq [online]. 2014, n.21, pp.67-78. ISSN 1794-1237.

In recent years the interest of researchers and professionals from various disciplines in the analysis of social, biological and artificial systems from the perspective of complex networks has grown considerably. Some of these networks, such as the transportation network, are part of the critical infrastructure and are the basis of many human activities. One of the most important practical properties of complex networks is the ability to maintain some functions under the occurrence of errors, failures or attacks to their nodes or links; this property has been called robustness, resilience or vulnerability by different authors. In this paper we present a review of the literature on the concept of vulnerability in the complex networks formalism and some perspectives of its application in the analysis of urban transportation networks. The objective of this paper is to give new insights to researchers and decision makers in the analysis of mobility and transportation systems.

Keywords : Complex Networks; Robustness; Vulnerability; Urban Transportation.
