In the first paper of this series [S. Torquato, J. Chem. Phys. 136, 054106 (2012)], analytical results concerning the continuum percolation of overlapping hyperparticles in d-dimensional Euclidean space R(d) were obtained, including lower bounds on the percolation threshold. In the present investigation, we provide additional analytical results for certain cluster statistics, such as the concentration of k-mers and related quantities, and obtain an upper bound on the percolation threshold η(c…

The convergence of a discrete model to its continuous limit is controlled by a power-law dependency with a universal exponent θ=3/2, which allows us to estimate the continuous percolation thresholds in a model of aligned hypercubes in dimensions d=3,…,7 with accuracy far better than that attained using any other method before.
