Percolation of Poisson sticks on the plane. (English) Zbl 0725.60115
We consider a percolation model on the plane which consists of 1- dimensional sticks placed at points of a Poisson process on \({\mathbb{R}}^ 2\); each stick having a random, but bounded length and a random direction. The critical probabilities are defined with respect to the occupied clusters and vacant clusters, and they are shown to be equal. The equality is shown through a ‘pivotal cell’ argument, using a version of the Russo-Seymour-Welsh theorem which we obtain for this model.
