BACKGROUND

  • On a personal note - my own undergraduate project was a review of percolation which set me up for my research life. When I enrolled for a Ph.D. I asked for a research project on percolation but my supervisor Jaan Oitmaa pointed out I then knew more about it than anyone else in the department. So I had to settle for Heisenberg models (also a phase transition) and have spent ever since trying to get back to percolation. I admit to having given several spinglass projects to students wanting machine learning.
  • Choosing the correct level non-trivial.
  • At upper left, Livnat's percolation project - beautiful example of all the project requirements, more details if time permits. Lower left - my percolation project - obviously non-electronic in 1974, presentation with projector slides.
