The site-percolation problem on a simple cubic lattice is studied by the Monte Carlo method. By combining results for periodic lattices of different sizes through the use of finite-size scaling theory we obtain good estimates forpc (0.3115±0.0005),β (0.41±0.01),γ (1.6±0.1), andν(0.8±0.1). These results are consistent with other studies. The shape of the clusters is also studied. The average “surface area” for clusters of sizek is found to be close to its maximal value for the low-concentration… 

Scaling form for percolation cluster sizes and perimeters

Randomly generated clusters of sites on the triangular lattice at and just below pc, and clusters previously generated on the square lattice are analysed to determine their scaling form. The scaling

Monte Carlo experiments on cluster size distribution in percolation

Cluster statistics in two- and three-dimensional site percolation problems are derived here by Monte Carlo methods. The average number n, of percolation clusters with s occupied sites each is

Monte Carlo tests of universality in a correlated-site percolation problem

The authors study a correlated-site percolation model on a square lattice in which a site is occupied if all four bonds surrounding it are occupied; this model is of possible relevance to supercooled

Probabilistic bond percolation in random arrays

We consider the problem of percolation in a system having sites distributed at random, but in which only a fractionh of the physical overlaps form viable links. We convert this to a site problem on

Extremum of the percolation cluster surface

The internal and external surfaces of a percolation cluster, as well as the total surface of the entire percolation system, are investigated numerically and analytically. Numerical simulation is

Critical exponent of percolation conductivity by finite-size scaling

Calculates the critical exponent of percolation conductivity t for two- and three-dimensional networks by using a finite-size scaling technique. In two dimensions the authors obtain t=1.264+or-0.054,

Percolation and critical exponents on randomly close‐packed mixtures of hard spheres

This paper reports results for the percolation threshold and the critical exponents on a continuum model based on randomly close‐packed mixtures of hard spherical particles. In the model, all the

Monte Carlo renormalisation group approach to critical percolation behaviour in three dimensions: simple cubic lattice

A Monte Carlo renormalisation group approach using a scaling transformation in real space is applied to the critical properties for the site percolation problem on the simple cubic lattice. The



CORRIGENDUM: On the cluster size distribution for critical percolation

A Monte Carlo study of clustering in the vicinity of the critical percolation probability pc has been carried out on the body-centered cubic lattice in which both first- and second-neighbour sites

In this paper we present results for the critical percolation probabilities of a number of two- and three-dimensional lattices. These results are based upon Monte Carlo studies of the way in which

Some Cluster Size and Percolation Problems

The problem of cluster size distribution and percolation on a regular lattice or graph of bonds and sites is reviewed and its applications to dilute ferromagnetism, polymer gelation, etc., briefly

Cluster shapes in lattice gases and percolation

An analysis is undertaken of the mean surface s of clusters of size n from Monte Carlo data simulating a two-dimensional Ising model. At sufficiently high temperatures the data represent a

Thermodynamic scaling laws for a dilute ferromagnet in the percolation limit by series methods

The nth field derivative of the free energy of a randomly dilute Ising model in the percolation limit J>>kBt is known to be determined by the nth moment mn(p) of the cluster size distribution.

An introduction to percolation theory

Abstract Percolation theory, the theory of the properties of classical particles interacting with a random medium, is of wide applicability and provides a simple picture exhibiting critical

Crystal statistics with long-range forces: I. The equivalent neighbour model

The aim of this series of papers is to help bridge the gap in our knowledge of the properties of the Ising and Heisenberg models between very short-range forces corresponding to nearest-neighbour

Series expansion study of the pair connectedness in bond percolation models

The pair connectedness C(r,p) in a percolation model is the probability that a lattice site at position r belongs to a finite cluster containing the origin when neighbouring sites are connected with

Percolation Phenomena in Higher Dimensions: Approach to the Mean-Field Limit

Percolation thresholds in two to six dimensions are studied by Monte Carlo methods in order to test Toulouse's recent conjecture that at six dimensions the Bethe lattice description of the threshold
