**ABSTRACT:**The model of random interlacements is a one-parameter family $\mathcal I^u,$ $u \ge 0,$ of random subsets of $\mathbb{Z}^d,$ which locally describes the trace of simple random walk on a $d$-dimensional torus run up to time $u$ times its volume. Its complement, the so-called vacant set $\mathcal V^u$, has been shown to undergo a non-trivial percolation phase-transition in $u;$ i.e., there exists $u_*(d) \in (0, \infty)$ such that for $u \in [0, u_*(d))$ the vacant set $\mathcal V^u$ contains a unique infinite connected component $\mathcal V_\infty^u,$ while for $u > u_*(d)$ it consists of finite connected components. Sznitman \cite{SZ11,SZ11B} showed that $u_*(d) \sim \log d,$ and in this article we show the existence of $u(d) > 0$ with $\frac{u(d)}{u_*(d)} \to 1$ as $d \to \infty$ such that $\mathcal V_\infty^{u}$ is transient for all $u \in [0, u(d)).$12/2013; -
##### Article: On chemical distances and shape theorems in percolation models with long-range correlations

[Show abstract] [Hide abstract]

**ABSTRACT:**In this paper we provide general conditions on a one parameter family of random infinite subsets of Z^d to contain a unique infinite connected component for which the chemical distances are comparable to the Euclidean distances, focusing primarily on models with long-range correlations. Our results are in the spirit of those by Antal and Pisztora proved for Bernoulli percolation. We also prove a shape theorem for balls in the chemical distance under such conditions. Our general statements give novel results about the structure of the infinite connected component of the vacant set of random interlacements and the level sets of the Gaussian free field. We also obtain alternative proofs to the main results in arXiv:1111.3979. Finally, as a corollary, we obtain new results about the (chemical) diameter of the largest connected component in the complement of the trace of the random walk on the torus.12/2012; - [Show abstract] [Hide abstract]

**ABSTRACT:**We consider continuous time interlacements on Z^d, with d bigger or equal to 3, and investigate the scaling limit of their occupation times. In a suitable regime, referred to as the constant intensity regime, this brings Brownian interlacements on R^d into play, whereas in the high intensity regime the Gaussian free field shows up instead. We also investigate the scaling limit of the isomorphism theorem of arXiv:1111.4818. As a by-product, when d=3, we obtain an isomorphism theorem for Brownian interlacements.Bulletin Brazilian Mathematical Society 09/2012; · 0.35 Impact Factor
