Hi,
Could someone explain how to calculate the probability that two substitutional dopants will reside in adjacent lattice sites. For example, given a dopant concentration of 5% and a crystal structure in which each lattice site/atom is coordinated to 8 others what is the probability of finding two dopant atoms residing in adjacent lattice sites? Thanks for any insight!

Well, the probability of a dopant being isolated would be (10.05)^8 (using your example). I'm sure you can figure out the rest.
