Coagulation-diffusion systems: Derivation and existence of solutions for the diffuse interface structure equations. (English) Zbl 0732.35103
This paper considers an infinite system of partial differential equations, the coagulation-diffusion equations, which add spatial diffusion to the classical coagulation equations. The main emphasis is placed on deriving an infinite system of ordinary differential equations which describe the structured interface between reacting coagulation and dilute concentration. Existence of solutions to the interfacial equations is proven under special boundary conditions.
