In science:

When another site gets bonded to one of these two sites then the cluster is of three sites, and so on.
An Introduction to Monte Carlo Simulation of Statistical physics Problem
Each site consequently has a different αi , which we determined by requiring that the total fraction ˜α of the force transferred from the unstable site to the nearestneighbors sites is constant in the system, i.e. αi = ˜α/qi .
A Nonconservative Earthquake Model of Self-Organized Criticality on a Random Graph
The random walker is placed initially upon site x = 0 and performs jumps to its nearest neighbour sites with a waiting time distribution ψ(t) until it reaches a trap site where it is absorbed.
Some exact results for the trapping of subdiffusive particles in one dimension
In complex networks with degree distribution p(k), which is the probability that a given site has k connections (links) that connect it with other k sites (We say that the given site’ degree is k .), there are N individuals that are grouped as a household on every site.
The Spread of Infectious Disease with Household-Structure on the Complex Networks
The particle at site i can jump forward to the site i + 1 with the rate 1 if the target site is empty.
Two-Channel Totally Asymmetric Simple Exclusion Processes
The Hamiltonian of the random-site Ising model has the following form H = −J Xhij i where hij i denotes the summation over the nearest neighbour sites of 3D simple cubic lattice, J is the interaction constant, ci = 1 if the i-th site is occupied by spin and ci = 0 otherwise, the Ising spins Si take two values ±1.
Criticality of the random-site Ising model: Metropolis, Swendsen-Wang and Wolff Monte Carlo algorithms
Connect site i to i + 1 for all i such that site N is connected to site 1.
Critical behaviour of mixed random fibers, fibers on a chain and random graph
Now connect each site randomly to a unique site other than i + 1 and i − 1, thus forming N/2 pairs of sites.
Critical behaviour of mixed random fibers, fibers on a chain and random graph
In such a simulation, one typically chooses a site and updates it according to a rule depending on the states of sites that provide inputs to it, repeating the process until a test of every site yields no change in the state of the system.
Exhaustive percolation on random networks
We assume that i) transmittance at each site is a random variable, ii) transmittances at two different sites are independent, iii) transmittances at all sites are distributed according to a given normalized probability density f (t).
Persistent random walk on a site-disordered one-dimensional lattice: Photon subdiffusion
In the spin variables, a vortex pinned at site i corresponds to ˆS z i = +1/2; an empty site i is transformed to a site with ˆS z i = −1/2.
Transverse Meissner Physics of Planar Superconductors with Columnar Pins
We diagonalize it and minimize its energy by allowing a single vortex to fluctuate between the two columnar pins, i and i+ 1. A vortex in site i − 1 may then fluctuate into site i, raise the energy of sites i and i + 1, and make the vortex in site i + 1 relax by fluctuating into site i+ 2.
Transverse Meissner Physics of Planar Superconductors with Columnar Pins
We will focus our study on randomly generated graphs, with N sites and a fixed connectivity K = 318,19 , i.e., each site i is connected to K = 3 other (randomly chosen) sites j .

On each site with coordinates (i, j ) of this lattice, there is a random energy ǫi,j , drawn independently from site to site, but from the identical distribution ρ(ǫ).
