Similarity solutions of a Becker-Döring system with time-dependent monomer input
Wattis, Jonathan AD (2004) Similarity solutions of a Becker-Döring system with time-dependent monomer input. Journal of Physics. A, Mathematical and General, 37 . pp. 7823-7841. ISSN 0305-4470
We formulate the Becker-Döring equations for cluster growth in the presence of a time-dependent source of monomer input. In the case of size-independent aggregation and ragmentation rate coefficients we find similarity solutions which are approached in the large time limit. The form of the solutions depends on the rate of monomer input and whether fragmentation is present in the model; four distinct types of solution are found.
