Given an ordering of the vertices of a finite graph, let the induced weight for an edge be the separation of its endpoints in the ordering. Layout problems involve choosing the ordering to minimize a cost functional such as the sum or maximum of the edge weights. We give growth rates for the costs of some of these problems on supercritical percolation processes and supercritical random geometric graphs, obtained by placing vertices randomly in the unit cube and joining them whenever at most some threshold distance apart.
