In this paper we study the existence phase transition of scale invariant random fractal models. We determine the exact value of the critical point of this phase transition for all models satisfying two weak assumptions. In addition, we show that for a large subclass, the fractal model is in the empty phase at the critical point. This subclass of models includes the scale invariant Poisson Boolean model and the Brownian loop soup. In contrast to earlier results in the literature, we do not need… 
The fractal cylinder process: Existence and connectivity phase transitions
We consider a semi-scale invariant version of the Poisson cylinder model which in a natural way induces a random fractal set. We show that this random fractal exhibits an existence phase transition


The existence phase transition for two Poisson random fractal models
In this paper we study the existence phase transition of the random fractal ball model and the random fractal box model. We show that both of these are in the empty phase at the critical point of
Universal behavior of connectivity properties in fractal percolation models
Partially motivated by the desire to better understand the connectivity phase transition in fractal percolation, we introduce and study a class of continuum fractal percolation models in dimension
Random soups, carpets and fractal dimensions
Using the second-moment method, it is shown that a class of random connected planar fractal sets induced by a Poissonian scale-Invariant and translation-invariant point process are deterministic and equal to their expectation dimension.
Scaling limits, brownian loops, and conformal fields
The main topic of these lecture notes is the continuum scaling limit of planar lattice models. One reason why this topic occupies an important place in the theory of probability and mathematical
Covering the whole space with Poisson random balls
We consider Poisson random balls, with the pair (center, radius) being given by a Poisson point process. According to the intensity measure of the Poisson process, we investigate the eventuality of
Conformally Invariant Processes in the Plane
Theoretical physicists have predicted that the scaling limits of many two-dimensional lattice models in statistical physics are in some sense conformally invariant. This belief has allowed physicists
The Brownian loop soup
Abstract.We define a natural conformally invariant measure on unrooted Brownian loops in the plane and study some of its properties. We relate this measure to a measure on loops rooted at a boundary
On the structure of Mandelbrot's percolation process and other random cantor sets
We consider generalizations of Mandelbrot's percolation process. For the process which we call the random Sierpinski carpet, we show that it passes through several different phases as its parameter
Probability on Trees and Networks
Starting around the late 1950s, several research communities began relating the geometry of graphs to stochastic processes on these graphs. This book, twenty years in the making, ties together
Fractal geometry
Editor's note: The following articles by Steven G. Krantz and Benoit B. Mandelbrot have an unusual history. In the fall of 1988, Krantz asked the Bulletin of the American Mathematical Society Book
