Abstract: | Percolation theory is a branch of probability theory describing connectedness in a stochastic network. The connectedness of a percolation process is governed by a few, typically one or two, parameters. A central theme in this thesis is to draw inference about the parameters of a percolation process based on information whether particular points are connected or not. Special attention is paid to issues of consistency as the number of points whose connectedness is revealed tends to infinity. A... more |
