Universality and non-universality in behavior of self-repairing random networks

  • A. S. Ioselevich
  • D. S. Lyubshin


We numerically study one-parameter family of random single-cluster systems. A finite-concentration topological phase transition from the net-like to the tree-like phase (the latter is without a backbone) is present in all models of the class. Correlation radius index ν B of the backbone in the net-like phase; graph dimensions—d min of the tree-like phase, and D min of the backbone in the net-like phase appear to be universal within the accuracy of our calculations, while the backbone fractal dimension D B is not universal: it depends on the parameter of a model.
