Hence, the global adsorption rate acquires the most distinctive characteristic of the local adsorption rate, namely it becomes multi-valued function. A foremost property of the global adsorption rate is the size-independence of the fluctuations amplitude.

The fact that this global adjoint solution is unique (up to a multiplicative constant) follows from the normalized adjoint Harnack principle (3.1) applied to M1 /M2 where M1 and M2 denote two global positive adjoint solutions.

For sufficiently small threshold values ϕ < 1/α the probability of global cascades is close to 1 in a well connected graph, yielding the upper boundary of the region where global cascades are possible, Rc (ϕ).
Threshold-Controlled Global Cascading in Wireless Sensor Networks
Focusing on the three quantities outlined earlier, the probability of global cascades (yielding the phase diagram), the average global cascade times, and energy costs, compared to the original random geometrical network are discussed below.
