Main Document

STP Percolation Program 

written by Harvey Gould, Jan Tobochnik, Wolfgang Christian, and Anne Cox

The STP Percolation program generates occupied lattice sites with probability p and then determines the clusters of occupied sites. The purpose of this program is to demonstrate some of the important properties of percolation, especially near the geometrical phase transition. The default system is a square lattice of linear dimension L=128 and value of p=0.5927 at which the lattice is displayed.

STP Percolation is part of a suite of Open Source Physics programs that model aspects of Statistical and Thermal Physics (STP). The program is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive. Double clicking the stp_Percolation.jar file will run the program if Java is installed on your computer. Additional programs can be found by searching ComPADRE for Open Source Physics, STP, or Statistical and Thermal Physics.
