Tolerance of Double-Loop Computer Networks to Multinode Failures
May 1989 (vol. 38 no. 5)
pp. 738-741
The reliability of double-loop networks is examined along with their fault tolerance in cases when more than two nodes break down. It is demonstrated that double-loop structured networks are very desirable with respect to the measure of fault tolerance introduced.
