Remarks on scaling a model of Witten-Sander type

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


We try to prove rigorously that the perimeter of the large Witten-Sander cluster does not scale as the square root of its area, by making a forced comparison with the ill-posed Hele-Shaw problem of fluid dynamics. The attempt is not completely successful; nevertheless some interesting consequences of the comparison are derived.
