A cluster-size averaging model for strongly discontinuous percolation

Yuhei Yamada, Yoshihiro Yamazaki

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We propose a network percolation model, called cut-off model, which exhibits strongly discontinuous transition by an averaging effect of cluster sizes. In this model, a randomly selected bond is added if the size of the cluster formed by the bond is less than a times of the mean cluster size. It is shown that the model is strongly discontinuous when a is a finite constant.
