Kinetic models for dust coagulation in interstellar clouds
Vol. 2 No. 2 (2007) P.235~P.249
In this paper we propose some kinetic models which take into account different mechanisms of coagulation between two populations of dust particles inside interstellar nebulae. These models are in general nonlinear; however, at the end of the paper we perform an approximate procedure to obtain a linear transport equation even for the model which considers the most general mechanism of coagulation.
