Reliable Spanners for Metric Spaces

LIPIcs-SoCG-2021-43.pdf (0.8 MB)


A spanner is reliable if it can withstand large, catastrophic failures in the network. More precisely, any failure of some nodes can only cause a small damage in the remaining graph in terms of the dilation, that is, the spanner property is maintained for almost all nodes in the residual graph. Constructions of reliable spanners of near linear size are known in the low-dimensional Euclidean settings. Here, we present new constructions of reliable spanners for planar graphs, trees and (general) metric spaces.
