Optimal Network Compression

08/20/2020 ∙ by Hamed Amini, et al. ∙ 0

This paper introduces a formulation of the optimal network compression problem for financial systems. This general formulation is presented for different levels of network compression or rerouting allowed from the initial interbank network. We prove that this problem is, generically, NP-hard. We focus on objective functions generated by systemic risk measures under systematic shocks to the financial network. We conclude by studying the optimal compression problem for specific networks; this permits us to study the so-called robust fragility of certain network topologies more generally as well as the potential benefits and costs of network compression.
