Multifractality in elastic percolation

  • Alex Hansen
  • Stéphane Roux


We present numerical results on the distribution of forces in the central-force percolation model at threshold in two dimensions. We conjecture a relation between the multifractal spectrum of scalar and vector percolation that we test for central-foce percolation. This relation is in excellent agreement with our numerical data.
