## Abstract

In Bernoulli site percolation on Penrose tilings there are two natural definitions of the critical probability. This paper shows that they are equal on almost all Penrose tilings. It also shows that for almost all Penrose tilings the number of infinite clusters is almost surely~0 or~1. The results generalize to percolation on a large class of aperiodic tilings in arbitrary dimension, to percolation on ergodic subgraphs of $\hbox{\Bbbvii Z}^d$, and to other percolation processes, including Bernoulli bond percolation.
