Covering a graph or a lattice with nonoverlapping dimers is a problem that has received considerable interest in areas, such as discrete mathematics, statistical physics, chemistry, and materials science. Yet, the problem of percolation on dimer-covered lattices has received little attention. In particular, percolation on lattices that are fully covered by nonoverlapping dimers has not evidently been considered. Here, we propose a procedure for generating random dimer coverings of a given…

Dimer site-bond percolation on a triangular lattice

A generalization of the site-percolation problem, in which pairs of neighbor sites (site dimers) and bonds are independently and randomly occupied on a triangular lattice, has been studied by means

Percolation of disordered jammed sphere packings

We determine the site and bond percolation thresholds for a system of disordered jammed sphere packings in the maximally random jammed state, generated by the Torquato–Jiao algorithm. For the site

Percolation in a triangle on a square lattice

Percolation on a plane is usually associated with clusters spanning two opposite sides of a rectangular system. Here we investigate three-leg clusters generated on a square lattice and spanning the

Ice rule fragility via topological charge transfer in artificial colloidal ice

It is shown that the ice rule in colloidal ice is emergent, limited to certain geometries, and demonstrated how it can break down under changes of the lattice structure, and how this can be spontaneously broken by topological charge transfer.

Efficient space virtualisation for Hoshen-Kopelman algorithm

The proposed algorithm is applied for computation of random-site percolation thresholds for four dimensional simple cubic lattice with sites' neighbourhoods containing next-next-nearest neighbours (3NN).

Designing disorder into crystalline materials

Crystals are a state of matter characterized by periodic order. Yet, crystalline materials can harbour disorder in many guises, such as non-repeating variations in composition, atom displacements,
