Analyze percolation properties of periodic networks

Project description


The perconet package provides tools to analyze the percolation properties of periodic nets or networks. The terminology to describe such systems varies between fields (see the sections for mathematicians and for chemists in the documentation).

Periodic networks arise often in simulations of chemical or physical systems with periodic boundary conditions. Since periodic nets have no actual boundaries, the question whether they percolate must be interpreted as does the structure wrap around the periodic boundary?

perconet implements a loop finder algorithm that reports the number of independent ways in which the structure wraps around the boundary.
