  • Interesting fact: Charles Dodgson, also known as Lewis Carroll, wrote "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" after Alice Pleasance Liddell. It was to be believed he fell in love with her and asked the parents if he could some day marry her. The parents disconnected their friendship. Alice Liddell has 12 letters, as does the pen name Lewis Carroll. It's a coincidence he uses 2 r's where the 2 d's are, as with the 2 L's.

This program uses disconnected domains and a variable-oriented propagation scheme as in GNU Prolog.
Component Programming and Interoperability in Constraint Solver Design
Notice that for p(n) ≪ log n/n the graph G(n, p) is a.s. disconnected, and therefore the support of the first eigenvector will be at most as large as the size of its largest connected component.

Helium nanodroplets and trapped Bose-Einstein condensates as prototypes of finite quantum fluids
Such cuts disconnect the strip in two subsystems and the correlation function is thus vanishing for larger distances for the corresponding realisations, inducing a discontinuity of Gσ (τ ).

Hence the entropy density of blocked configurations is simply the number of disconnected clusters of the graph times log(2).
Metastable configurations of spin models on random graphs
Below the percolation threshold of the graph c = 1 blocked states are typically not magnetised since the graph consists of many small disconnected clusters: flipping all spins of such a cluster leads from one blocked configuration to another.
