Braess’s paradox is the phenomenon that can occur in road traffic networks, where if you add a road to the network, everyone’s travel time increases. By contrast, if you add a connection to an electrical network, the equivalent resistance (“traffic”) can never increase. I will discuss why that is, and possibly will mention other strange phenomena such as congestion collapse.
