On the connectivity index for lattices of nonintegral dimensionality
We define the connectivity indexc for an infinite graph by the requirement that to disconnect a subset of at leastV points from the rest of the graph requires the deletion of a minimum ofS(V) bonds whereS(V) ∼V(c−1)/c for largeV. For ad-dimensional hypercubical lattice withd integral,c=d. We construct explicit examples of lattices with nonintegral connectivity indexc, 1<c<∞. It is argued that the connectivity index is an important parameter determining the critical behaviour of Hamiltonians on these lattices.
