Dynamics on scale-invariant structures

Abstract:

We investigate dynamical processes on random and regular fractals.

The (static) problem of percolation in the semi-infinite plane introduces many pertinent ideas including real space renormalisation group (RSRG) fugacity transformations and scaling forms. We study the percolation probability to determine the surface critical behaviour and to establish exponent relations. The fugacity approach is generalised to study random walks on diffusion-limited aggregates (DLA). Using regular ...
