Connectedness of Poisson cylinders in Euclidean space
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2016

We consider the Poisson cylinder model in R-d, d >= 3. We show that given any two cylinders c(1) and c(2) in the process, there is a sequence of at most d - 2 other cylinders creating a connection between c(1) and c(2). In particular, this shows that the union of the cylinders is a connected set, answering a question appearing in (Probab. Theory Related Fields 154 (2012) 165-191). We also show that there are cylinders in the process that are not connected by a sequence of at most d - 3 other cylinders. Thus, the diameter of the cluster of cylinders equals d - 2.
