The Myth of the Robust-Yet-Fragile Nature of Scale-Free Networks

Scale-free networks, beyond their hallmark skewed degree distribution, are commonly described by their robust-yet-fragile nature. This prevailing characterization suggests that scale-free networks are more robust against random failures, yet more vulnerable to targeted attacks, when compared with random graphs of the same size. In this seminar talk, we will challenge this traditional portrayal, presenting both experimental and theoretical results that offer a fresh understanding of the robustness of scale-free networks.
