Abstract: This paper aims to provide an alternative approach to the exact computation of the reliability polynomial of univariate and bivariate network reliability by applying simulation-interpolation based methods. This 2-phase combination consists in approximating firstly the values of a network's reliability for different states (i.e. different edge failure probabilities) through simulation techniques, and secondly to use this information as interpolation nodes to approximate the network's reliability as a continuous function. These results, although approximated, can then serve as decision-makers in many real-life scenarios.We review some basic concepts for a later development of the proposed approach in instances of gradually increasing complexity.
