AbstractThe goal of percolation theory is to study the geometric properties of random networks. In this talk I will describe two variants of percolation:
1. a static variant, called "ordinary percolation";
My main target is to show that these two variants exhibit remarkable similarities and remarkable differences.
Ordinary percolation is used to model the connectivity
in a random network ("What is connected to what?").
I will present a few core results, some open questions and also some key challenges. No prior knowledge of percolation is necessary for the talk.
