Emergence of fractal in aggregation with stochastic self-replication    [PDF]

M. K. Hassan, M. Z. Hassan, N. Islam
We propose and investigate a simple model which describes the kinetics of aggregation of Brownian particles with stochastic self-replication. An exact solution and the scaling theory are presented alongside numerical simulation which fully support all theoretical findings. In particular, we show analytically that the particle size distribution function exhibits dynamic scaling and we verified it numerically using the idea of data-collapse. Besides, the conditions under which the resulting system emerges as a fractal are found, the fractal dimension of the system is given and the relationship between this fractal dimension and a conserved quantity is pointed out.
