Bootstrap percolation, and other automata

  title={Bootstrap percolation, and other automata},
  author={Robert Morris},
  journal={Eur. J. Comb.},
Many fundamental and important questions from statistical physics lead to beautiful problems in extremal and probabilistic combinatorics. One particular example of this phenomenon is the study of bootstrap percolation, which is motivated by a variety of ‘real-world’ cellular automata, such as the Glauber dynamics of the Ising model of ferromagnetism, and kinetically constrained spin models of the liquid–glass transition. In this review article, we will describe some dramatic recent developments… CONTINUE READING
