I would like to read some of the physics literature on two-dimensional percolation, however in attempting this I have run into two problems. (1) Physics papers on percolation are (relatively) hard for me to locate, and when I do locate them I don't know which are the important ones I should read. (2) Given my lack of substantial background in mathematical physics, the physics papers I find are hard for me to read.
I have become interested in two-dimensional percolation since reading some of the (relatively) recent been spectacular progress in the (mathematical) theory of two-dimensional percolation due to Smirnov, Schramm, Lawler, Werner, and others (which confirms many conjectures from the physics literature,though many open questions still remain).
The best I currently can do is to look at references to the physics literature in mathematics papers on percolation. I am looking for:
- Specific outstanding physics papers about two-dimensional percolation which I should read.
- Useful tips for mathematicians trying to read such papers.
Thanks very much!
