Counting Lattice Animals: A Parallel Attack

Stephan Mertens and Markus E. Lautenbacher


Abstract

A parallel algorithm for the enumeration of isolated connected clusters on a regular lattice is presented. The algorithm has been implemented on 17 RISC-based workstations to calculate the perimeter polynomials for the plane triangular lattice up to clustersize $s=21$. New data for perimeter polynomials $D_s$ up to $D_{21}$, total number of clusters $g_s$ up to $g_{22}$, and coefficients $b_r$ in the low-density series expansion of the mean cluster size up to $b_{21}$ are given.
