As mentioned in the introduction, it was recently proved for the classical sandpile model on the bracelet graph (with proper interpretations of ρs and ρtr ) that ρs (cid:54)= ρtr .
Critical densities in sandpile models with quenched or annealed disorder
One can prove this for a number of specific graphs that have an infinite volume counterpart, for instance Cn (where both densities are trivially equal to 1), or, less obvious, for the bracelet graph .
Critical densities in sandpile models with quenched or annealed disorder
For instance, for the classical sandpile model on the bracelet graph it is known that ρs (cid:54)= ρtr = ρth , and combining Theorems 2 and 3 of this paper gives the same relation for the directed quenched sandpile models satisfying (2.2).

The sequence of numbers NZ,sq ,F F ,Lt is equal to the number Nbr,Lt+1 of distinct bracelets (i.e. distinct modulo rotations and reflections) with Lt + 1 black beads and Lt white beads (given as sequence A007123 in and previously as sequence M1218 in ).
Exact Potts Model Partition Function for Strips of the Square Lattice
The number of bracelets enumerated without dividing out by equivalence classes of reflections, i.e. the number that are distinct up to rotations only, with Lt + 1 black beads and Lt white beads, is given by the Catalan number CLt .
