Reconsideration of continuum percolation of isotropically oriented sticks in three dimensions

Z. Neda, R. Florian, and Y. Brechet

The continuum percolation problem of permeable and isotropically oriented sticks (with the form of capped cylinders) is reconsidered by Monte Carlo simulations in three dimensions. Errors in earlier studies are revealed and results in agreement with the excluded volume rule are presented. Finite-size effects are discussed.
