Java Applet: Percolation

[ Welcome | Syllabus | References | Lectures | Assignments ]


This applet demonstrates site percolation on a two-dimensional square lattice. The picture on the left represents an LxL lattice. Occupied sites are shown by colored circles, and empty sites are not colored. A site which belongs to a finite (non-spanning) cluster is colored blue, and sites belonging to a spanning cluster are colored green. A cluster can be highlighted in red by moving the mouse pointer onto any of its sites.

The data window on the upper right of the applet displays the following observables:

The control panel allows you to adjust the following parameters:
