Grimmett: Percolation

“Suppose we immerse a large porous stone in a bucket of water. What is the probability that the centre of the stone is wetted? In formulating a simple stochastic model for such a situation, Broadbent and Hammersley (1957) gave birth to the ‚percolation model‘.” (p. 1) #Grimmett #Broadbent #Hammersley #percolation
