We study a variation of the trapping reaction, A+B→A, in which both the traps (A) and the particles (B) undergo diffusion, and the traps upon meeting react according to A+A→0 or A. This two-species reaction-diffusion system is known to exhibit a nontrivial decay exponent for the B particles, and recently renormalization group methods have predicted an anomalous dimension in the BB correlation function. To test these predictions, we develop a computer simulation method, motivated by the… 



Trapping reaction with mobile traps.

The Monte Carlo results for the two-species trapping reaction A+B-->B with diffusing A and B on lattices in one, two, and three dimensions are presented, showing that the asymptotic regime has not been reached, at least for d=2 and d=3.

Anomalous dimension in a two-species reaction–diffusion system

We study a two-species reaction–diffusion system with the reactions A+A→(0,A) and A+B→A, with general diffusion constants DA and DB. Previous studies showed that for dimensions d⩽2 the B particle

Persistence properties of a system of coagulating and annihilating random walkers.

This work calculates P(m,t), the probability that a randomly chosen lattice site contains a particle whose ancestors have undergone exactly (m-1) coagulations, and derives an exact nonperturbative relation between the exponents: namely delta(Q)=theta(1-Q).

Renormalization group calculation for the reaction kA + 0

The diffusion-controlled reaction kA + M is known IO be strongly dependent on Ruchlations in dimensions d < d. = 2/(k - 1). We develop a field-theoretic renormalization group approach to this system

The problem of a diffusing particle moving among diffusing traps is analyzed in general space dimension d, and upper and lower bounds for the probability Q(t) that the particle survives up to time t are derived.

Fluctuation kinetics in a multispecies reaction-diffusion system

We study fluctuation effects in a two-species reaction - diffusion system, with three competing reactions , and . Asymptotic density decay rates are calculated for using two separate methods - the

TOPICAL REVIEW: Applications of field-theoretic renormalization group methods to reaction diffusion problems

We review the application of field-theoretic renormalization group (RG) methods to the study of fluctuations in reaction–diffusion problems. We first investigate the physical origin of universality

Single-species three-particle reactions in one dimension.

Two previous Smoluchowski approaches to this problem reduce, with various corrections, to a single theory which surprisingly yields the same asymptotic density as the renormalization group.

Exact asymptotics for one-dimensional diffusion with mobile traps.

It is shown that the asymptotic behavior of the survival probability of the diffusing particle, P(t), satisfies lim([-ln(P(t)]/sqrt[rho2Dt]=4/ sqrt[pi], independent of D'.
