Overview

Over the past two decades percolation theory has been used to explain and model a wide variety of phenomena that are of industrial and scientific importance. Examples include characterization of porous materials and reservoir rocks, fracture patterns and earthquakes in rocks, calculation of effective transport properties of porous media permeability, conductivity, diffusivity, etc., groundwater flow, polymerization and gelation, biological evolution, galactic formation in the universe, spread of knowledge, and many others. Most of such applications have resulted in qualitative as well as quantitative predictions for the system of interest. This book attempts to describe in simple terms some of these applications, outline the results obtained so far, and provide further references for future reading.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Sahimi (chemical engineering, U. of Southern California) summarizes some of the more important applications of percolation theory to modeling various phenomena in disordered media, including the characterization of porous materials, groundwater flow in aquifers, gel networks, semiconductors, and biological membranes. He discusses only the applications in which the model can be tested against data. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
