Abstract

One of the most important research topics about complex networks

is examination of their vulnerability. Therefore, there are many studies

in the literature about analyzing the robustness and reliability of networks

using graph theoretical parameters. Among these parameters, the centrality

parameters play an important role. The closeness parameters and its derivatives

are widely discussed. In this study, the closeness parameter and the more

sensitive parameter residual closeness which is based on closeness parameter

have been considered. Furthermore, the closeness and residual closeness of

banana tree structure have been calculated.
