A complete graph effective medium approximation for lattice and continuum percolation

In this paper we introduce an effective medium theory that is capable of describing site percolation in both lattice and continuum three-dimensional systems. By exploiting self-consistency with a complete graph or network of identical conductors, the resulting effective medium equation allows for a straightforward estimate of the percolation threshold, which compares well with the available numerical results. The present formalism is easily generalized to describe transport in conductor-insulator composites with different microstructure properties. Copyright (C) EPLA, 2011
