We consider the kinetics of processes where the sites of a Bethe lattice are filled irreversibly and, in general, cooperatively by monomers, dimers, or polyatomics. For nearest neighbor and sometimes more general cooperative effects (including random filling as a special case), we show that the infinite hierarchy of rate equations for probabilities of empty subconfigurations can be exacty truncated and solved using a shielding property of empty sites. We indicate, in certain cases, a connection between these Bethe lattice solutions and certain approximate truncation solutions for corresponding processes on ‘‘physical’’ 2‐D and 3‐D lattices with the same coordination number.
