Probability on discrete structures by
Harry Kesten(
Book
)
14 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in English and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Most probability problems involve random variables indexed by space and/or time. These problems almost always have a version in which space and/or time are taken to be discrete. This volume deals with areas in which the discrete version is more natural than the continuous one, perhaps even the only one than can be formulated without complicated constructions and machinery. The 5 papers of this volume discuss problems in which there has been significant progress in the last few years; they are motivated by, or have been developed in parallel with, statistical physics. They include questions about asymptotic shape for stochastic growth models and for random clusters; existence, location and properties of phase transitions; speed of convergence to equilibrium in Markov chains, and in particular for Markov chains based on models with a phase transition; cutoff phenomena for random walks. The articles can be read independently of each other. Their unifying theme is that of models built on discrete spaces or graphs. Such models are often easy to formulate. Correspondingly, the book requires comparatively little previous knowledge of the machinery of probability

Percolation by
Geoffrey Grimmett(
Book
)
7 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The mathematical theory of percolation has acquired something of a reputation for inaccessibility. In addition, several recent advances of substance have tossed the historical order of discovery on its head. It is time to reexamine the subject afresh, in light of recent discoveries. This book does just that. It contains a definitive and coherent account of the subject, in an orderly way accessible to the nonspecialist, including the shortest and neatest proofs currently known. In order to maximize accessibility, it concentrates on bond percolation on the ddimensional cubic lattice where d>2. The subcritical and supercritical phases are described in considerable detail; the recent proofs of the uniqueness of critical points and the infinite open cluster are used extensively. There are two chapters devoted to a lucid account of the physical theory of scaling the renormalization in the context of percolation. There is a chapter dealing with the case of two dimensions, including a rather short proof of the famous exact calculation of + for the critical probability. The book terminates with a collection of pencil sketches of related areas of mathematics and physics
