A Computer Simulation Study of Sticks Percolation
Physics and Astronomy
A computer-simulation model is used to study the percolation phase transition of stiff chains/sticks on a square lattice. By varying the chain length, effects of the chain length (L(c)) on the percolation transition is explored. The percolation exponents seem to remain unchanged with L(c). The percolation threshold p(c) depends strongly on the chain-length, and shows a power-law dependence p(c)(L(c)) approximately L(c)-1/2.
