Analyticity and Mixing Properties for Random Cluster Model with q >0 on ℤ d

  • Aldo Procacci
  • Benedetto Scoppola


We study the Random Cluster Model on ℤ d for p near either 0 or 1 and for all q > 0 and we prove by mean of cluster expansion methods the analyticity of the pressure and finite connectivities in both regimes. These results are valid also in the regime q < 1 and they imply that percolation probability is strictly less than 1.
