An infinitevolume mixing or exponentialdecay property in a spin system or percolation model reflects the inability of the influence of the conguration in one region to propagate to distant regions, but in some circumstances where such properties hold, propagation can nonetheless occur in finite volumes endowed with boundary conditions. We establish the absense of such propagation, particularly in two dimensions in finite volumes which are simply connected, under a variety of conditions, mainly for the Potts model and the FortuinKasteleyn (FK) random cluster model, allowing external fields. For example, for the FK model in two dimensions we show that exponential decay of connectivity in infinite volume implies exponential decay in simply connected finite volumes, uniformly over all such volumes and all boundary conditions, and implies a strong mixing property for such volumes with certain types of boundary conditions. For the Potts model in two dimensions we show that exponential decay of correlations in infinite volume implies a strong mixing property in simply connected finite volumes, which includes exponential decay of correlations in simply connected finite volumes, uniformly over all such volumes and all boundary conditions.
