AB - 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 consideredâ€”vertices and links residual closeness. This characteristic is more sensitive than the well-known measures of vulnerabilityâ€”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.
