The Post-Gelation Behaviour of the Coagulation Equation with Product Kernel

Henry van Roessel, Mazi Shirvani


It is well known that solutions of the coagulation equation do not conserve
mass if the coagulation kernel grows too rapidly. The phenomenon whereby
conservation of mass breaks down in finite time is known as gelation and is
physically interpreted as being caused by the appearance of an infinite "gel"
or "superparticle". In this paper we discuss the post-gelation behaviour of
the coagulation equation with product kernel.
