Dilution-Induced Critical Dynamics

  • R. B. Stinchcombe


This lecture is concerned with the critical behaviour introduced into the dynamics of dilute systems by the divergence of the correlation length at the percolation threshold. In particular, dynamical properties of the geometrical structure will be discussed.

    A slightly different version of this approach was first given in C. K. Harris, D. Phil. Thesis, University of Oxford (1983); and it is understood that a fractal modal with similar ingredients has been discussed by C. Henley.Google Scholar
