Uniqueness of the infinite component in a random graph with applications to percolation and spin glasses

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


We extend the theorem of Burton and Keane on uniqueness of the infinite component in dependent percolation to cover random graphs on ℤd or ℤd × ℕ with long-range edges. We also study a short-range percolation model related to nearest-neighbor spin glasses on ℤd or on a slab ℤd × {0,... K} and prove both that percolation occurs and that the infinite component is unique for V=ℤ2×{0,1} or larger.
