Residual closeness in networks
A new characteristic (residual closeness) which can measure the network resistance is presented. It evaluates closeness after removal of vertices or links, hence two types are considered—vertices and links residual closeness. This characteristic is more sensitive than the well-known measures of vulnerability—it captures the result of actions even if they are small enough not to disconnect the graph. A definition for closeness is modified so it still can be used for unconnected graphs but the calculations are easier.
