## Abstract

The randomly diluted resistor network and XY model at low temperature T are studied near the d-dimensional percolation threshold using the expansion, where =6-d. The series expansion of the inverse susceptibility in powers of T for the XY model is identical to that of the appropriate resistive inverse susceptibility in powers of 0-1, where 0 is the conductance of a bond. However, the temperature-dependent critical concentration pc(T) for the XY model has no analog in the resistor network, where pc clearly does not depend on 0. This distinction arises from a rather subtle difference between the Fourier component representation of the Gaussian model for the resistor network and that of the bounded potential energy associated with the XY model. We introduce a family of models which provides a smooth interpolation between these two models and show that the phase boundary for the XY model satisfies certain simple self-consistency checks involving other susceptibilities. In particular we provide the first explicit calculation of the universal crossover function to finite temperature of the dilute XY model.
