Let C1 denote the largest connected component of the critical Erdos-Renyi random graph G(n,1/n). We show that, typically, the diameter of C1 is of order n1/3 and the mixing time of the lazy simple random walk on C1 is of order n. The latter answers a question of Benjamini, Kozma and Wormald.
These results extend to clusters of size n2/3 of p-bond percolation on any d-regular n-vertex graph where such clusters exist, provided that p(d-1) ≤ 1 + O(n-1/3).
