A mini course on percolation theory
These are lecture notes based on a mini course on percolation which was given at the Jyväskylä
summer school in mathematics in Jyväskylä, Finland, August 2009. The point of the course was
to try to touch on a number of different topics in percolation in order to give people some feel for
the field. These notes follow fairly closely the lectures given in the summer school. However, some
topics covered in these notes were not covered in the lectures (such as continuity of the percolation
function above the critical value) while other topics covered in detail in the lectures are not proved
in these notes (such as conformal invariance).
