We study the effect of dimensionality on the percolation threshold η(c) of identical overlapping nonspherical convex hyperparticles in d-dimensional Euclidean space R(d). This is done by formulating a scaling relation for η(c) that is based on a rigorous lower bound [Torquato, J. Chem. Phys. 136, 054106 (2012)] and a conjecture that hyperspheres provide the highest threshold, for any d, among all convex hyperparticle shapes (that are not a trivial affine transformation of a hypersphere). This… 

Anisotropy in finite continuum percolation: threshold estimation by Minkowski functionals

We examine the interplay between anisotropy and percolation, i.e. the spontaneous formation of a system spanning cluster in an anisotropic model. We simulate an extension of a benchmark model of

Using the concepts of mixed volumes and quermassintegrals of convex geometry, we derive an exact formula for the exclusion volume v ex(K) for a general convex body K that applies in any space

Characterization of void space, large-scale structure, and transport properties of maximally random jammed packings of superballs

Dense, disordered packings of particles are useful models of low-temperature amorphous phases of matter, biological systems, granular media, and colloidal systems. The study of dense packings of

Geometrical percolation threshold of congruent cuboidlike particles in overlapping particle systems.

A versatile family of cuboidlike particles and a numerical contact detection algorithm for these particles are presented, and an analytical formula is proposed to quantify the dependence of ϕ_{c} on the parameters m and a/b, and its reliability is verified.

Continuum percolation of congruent overlapping polyhedral particles: Finite-size-scaling analysis and renormalization-group method.

The continuum percolation of randomly orientated overlapping polyhedral particles, including tetrahedron, cube, octahedron, dodecahedron, and icosahedron, was analyzed by Monte Carlo simulations. Two

Continuum percolation-based tortuosity and thermal conductivity of soft superball systems: shape dependence from octahedra via spheres to cubes.

Two continuum percolation-based models are proposed to respectively obtain the tortuosity and effective thermal conductivity of soft superball systems considering their percolated behavior, where monodisperse overlapping superballs are uniformly distributed in a homogeneous solid matrix.
