We introduce a class of discrete-continuous percolation models and an efficient Monte Carlo algorithm for computing their properties. The class is general enough to include well-known discrete and continuous models as special cases. We focus on a particular example of such a model, a nanotube model of disintegration of activated carbon. We calculate its exact critical threshold in two dimensions and obtain a Monte Carlo estimate in three dimensions. Furthermore, we use this example to analyze…

An efficient algorithm is described that can measure an observable quantity in a percolation system for all values of the site or bond occupation probability from zero to one in an amount of time that scales linearly with the size of the system.

Percolation and cluster distribution. III. Algorithms for the site-bond problem

Algorithms for estimating the percolation probabilities and cluster size distribution are given in the framework of a Monte Carlo simulation for disordered lattices for the generalized site-bond

Non-Gaussian Limiting Behavior of the Percolation Threshold in a Large System

Abstract: We study short-range percolation models. In a finite box we define the percolation threshold as a random variable obtained from a stochastic procedure used in actual numerical calculations,

Continuum Percolation with Unreliable and Spread-Out Connections

It is indicated that real networks can exploit the presence of spread-out and unreliable connections to achieve connectivity more easily, provided they can maintain the average number of functioning connections per node.

Covering Algorithms, Continuum Percolation, and the Geometry of Wireless Networks.

It is shown how a simple scaling operation can change the percolation properties of the model, leading to the almost sure existence of an unbounded connected component for large values of lambda, for any covering algorithm.

Percolation and cluster structure parameters: The enhanced Hoshen-Kopelman algorithm

Characteristics of the Electrical Percolation in Carbon Nanotubes/Polymer Nanocomposites

We study the onset of electrical percolation in multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWNTs)/epoxy nanocomposites. Experiments show a threshold value of 3.2 wt % of MWNTs for percolation to occur.
