We wil l be saying “ 0 is responsible in InitGrid for the emplacement of streets of level l on D” for any block D w.r.t.
A Stationary, Mixing and Perturbative Counterexample to the 0-1-law for Random Walk in Random Environment in Two Dimensions
The emplacement of these streets has been provided by the random ingredient X evaluated at points (·, l, 0), so it is sound to say 0 is responsible.
A Stationary, Mixing and Perturbative Counterexample to the 0-1-law for Random Walk in Random Environment in Two Dimensions
For any block D w.r.t. g and any (cid:96)g (D) ≤ l < (cid:96)g (D), there is a unique w ∈ Z2 of which we say that it is in g responsible for the emplacement of streets of level l in D.
A Stationary, Mixing and Perturbative Counterexample to the 0-1-law for Random Walk in Random Environment in Two Dimensions
The randomness for their emplacement comes from the Bernoulli process X((·, l, (cid:31)D)).
A Stationary, Mixing and Perturbative Counterexample to the 0-1-law for Random Walk in Random Environment in Two Dimensions
If w ∈ Z2 is responsible in g for the emplacement of streets of level l in D, where l ∈ N is a level and D some block w.r.t. g , then w is not responsible in g for the emplacement of streets of level l in B , where B (cid:54)= D is some other block w.r.t. g .
A Stationary, Mixing and Perturbative Counterexample to the 0-1-law for Random Walk in Random Environment in Two Dimensions
Suppose w is responsible in g for the emplacement of streets of level l in both D and B , where both D and B are blocks w.r.t. g , but D (cid:54)= B . A first deduction is that either both B and D must contain the origin, or share the same upper right corner w = (cid:31)B = (cid:31)D .
A Stationary, Mixing and Perturbative Counterexample to the 0-1-law for Random Walk in Random Environment in Two Dimensions

A Stationary, Mixing and Perturbative Counterexample to the 0-1-law for Random Walk in Random Environment in Two Dimensions
The operator moves the values of ¯x at any point responsible in g for the emplacement of streets of level l in B to the point which is in θv g responsible for the emplacement of streets of level l on B + v .
