In a first-passage percolation model on the square lattice $Z^2$, if the passage times are independent then the number of geodesics is either $0$ or $+\infty$. If the passage times are stationary, ergodic and have a finite moment of order $\alpha > 1/2$, then the number of geodesics is either $0$ or $+\infty$. We construct a model with stationary passage times such that $E\lbrack t(e)^\alpha\rbrack < \infty$, for every $0 < \alpha < 1/2$, and with a unique geodesic. The recurrence/transience… Expand

In first-passage percolation, we place i.i.d. continuous weights at the edges of $${\mathbb{Z}^2}$$Z2 and consider the weighted graph metric. A distance-minimizing path between points x and y isExpand

If $(\omega(e))$ is a family of random variables (weights) assigned to the edges of $\mathbb{Z}^d$, the nearest neighbor graph is the directed graph induced by all edges $\langle x,y \rangle$ suchExpand
