Abstract

A real space renormalization group is formulated for continuum (off-lattice) percolation problems. It is applied to the system of overlapping discs with a variety of distributions of disc radii. Monte Carlo method is used for obtaining recursion relations. The results support universality: The Harris criterion seems to work for percolation. The position of the critical point shows stability against introducing a distribution in the disc radii.
