Percolation thresholds for discrete-continuous models with nonuniform probabilities of bond formation.

A class of discrete-continuous percolation models and an efficient Monte Carlo algorithm for computing their properties are introduced and it is found that it compares favorably to well-known algorithms for simpler systems.
