Abstract:Percolation and jamming phenomena are investigated for random sequential deposition of rectangular needles on d=2 square lattices. Associated thresholds Pcperc and Pcjam are determined for various needle sizes. Their ratios Pcperc /Pcjam are found to be a constant $$0.62 \pm 0.01$$ for all sizes. In addition the ratio of jamming thresholds for respectively square blocks and needles is also found to be a constant $$0.79 \pm 0.01$$. These constants exhibit some universal connexion in the…

The bilayer model belongs to the same universality class as two-dimensional standard percolation model, and the differences between the results obtained from bilayer and monolayer phases are explained on the basis of the transversal overlaps between rods occurring in the bilayer problem.

The results show that the percolation threshold exhibits a decreasing function when it is plotted as a function of the kmer size, and in the case of aligned kmers, the intersection points of the curves of R(L,k)(p) for different system sizes exhibit nonuniversal critical behavior, varying continuously with changes in the kmers size.
