Abstract

The discrete coagulation-fragmentation equations are a model for the kinetics of cluster growth in which clusters can coagulate via binary interactions to form larger clusters or fragment to form smaller ones. The assumptions made on the fragmentation coefficients have the physical interpretation that surface effects are important. Our results on the asymptotic behavior of solutions generalize the corresponding results of Ball, Carr, and Penrose for the Becker-Doring equation. © 1994 Plenum Publishing Corporation.
