Paper Abstract

We have studied the kinetics of irreversible diffusion-limited aggregation of particles, randomly walking on a square lattice. Diffusion coefficients of particle aggregates varied with size according to Saffmann-Delbruck equation. For three initial concentrations of particles, we present the time dependences of cluster size and mobility distributions, and of the zeroth and first moments of particle distributions. We show that time variation of the number of clusters can be, to a good approximation, described by a Smoluchowski-type kinetics for the bimolecular reaction A + A yields A in two dimensions.
