2d clusters from Liran's website



  • Mixture of glass/metal balls and our code examples are SITE percolation.
  • BOND percolation is when all sites occupied, but passages between open or closed.
  • Very Israeli, 2 main simulation algorithms:
    1. Leath-Alexandrovicz (A. - Weizmann, polymer science)
    2. Hoshen-Kopelman (2 Yordim in the USA)
  • Series expansion - a graph theory method - Aharony/Adler (TAU, Technion) - General dimensional results for bond percolation.
  • Dennis Rapaport (BIU). first got the 0.572... for the 2d site square lattice.
  • Extensions - bootstrap percolation (Adler).
  • Women in percolation theory = me + some students, Shaked Elfenboim and Livnat Cohen.

    Did you know that the origin of Percolation theory was in England during WW2 to calculate correct density of carbon granules in gas masks???
