Both jamming coverage and percolating probability profiles are studied for the random sequential adsorption of hot dimers in two dimensions. Jamming profiles show that the effect of the sample edge dies off after a few lattice spaces. On the contrary, in percolating profiles the effect propagates into the bulk

    Irreversible adsorption of diatomics on crystalline surfaces is sometimes modeled as random dimer filling of adjacent pairs of sites on a lattice. We note that this process can be implemented in two distinct ways: (i) randomly pick adjacent pairs of sites, jj’, and fill jj’ only if...

    Irreversible adsorption of spheres on flat collectors having dimension d < 2 is studied. Molecules are adsorbed on Sierpinski's triangle and carpet-like fractals (1 < d < 2), and on general Cantor set (d < 1).
