Robustness of networks against propagating attacks under vaccination strategies
We assume that Ti decreases to Ti = T fv (0 ≤ fv < 1) for a vaccinated node i (figure 1(b)).
Robustness of networks against propagating attacks under vaccination strategies

Robustness of networks against propagating attacks under vaccination strategies
We also remark that, for fv = 1, the value of Tc2 coincides with that for case (ii) as expected; the effect of vaccination is completely null when fv = 1.
Robustness of networks against propagating attacks under vaccination strategies
When the vaccines are not efficient (i.e., fv ∼ 1), the network is the most robust for case (i) among the three cases in the sense that Tc2 is the largest.
