The authors performed extensive Monte Carlo simulations for different types of walks (random walks, ideal chains and self-avoiding walks) on the Penrose quasilattice. The critical exponent nu -for each process-is found to be the same as for periodic two-dimensional lattices, thus universality seems to hold also for the Penrose tiling.
