Cardy's formula for some dependent percolation models

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We prove Cardy's formula for rectangular crossing probabilities in dependent site percolation models that arise from a deterministic cellular automaton with a random initial state. The cellular automaton corresponds to the zero-temperature case of Domany's stochastic Ising ferromagnet on the hexagonal lattice ℍ (with alternating updates of two sublattices) [7]; it may also be realized on the triangular lattice double-struck T sign with flips when a site disagrees with six, five and sometimes four of its six neighbors.
