Oscillations in a Becker-D\"oring model with injection and depletion

  title={Oscillations in a Becker-D\"oring model with injection and depletion},
  author={Barbara Niethammer and Robert L. Pego and Andr{\'e} Schlichting and Juan J. L. Vel'azquez},
We study the Becker–Döring bubblelator, a variant of the Becker–Döring coagulation-fragmentation system that models the growth of clusters by gain or loss of monomers. Motivated by models of gas evolution oscillators from physical chemistry, we incorporate injection of monomers and depletion of large clusters. For a wide range of physical rates, the Becker–Döring system itself exhibits a dynamic phase transition as mass density increases past a critical value. We connect the Becker–Döring… Expand

Direct simulation Monte Carlo for new regimes in aggregation-fragmentation kinetics
The stochastic methods are validated on the test problems and applied to verify the existence of oscillating regimes in the aggregation-fragmentation kinetics recently detected in deterministic simulations and prove the stability of the oscillations with respect to fluctuations and noise. Expand

Hopf bifurcation in addition-shattering kinetics
For a class of addition-shattering processes, this work provides convincing numerical evidence for never-ending oscillations in a certain region U of the parameter space. Expand
A bi-monomeric, nonlinear Becker-Döring-type system to capture oscillatory aggregation kinetics in prion dynamics.
This system may be viewed as a variant of the seminal Becker-Döring system, and is capable of displaying sustained though damped oscillations. Expand
A non-local problem for the Fokker-Planck equation related to the Becker-Döring model
This paper concerns a Fokker-Planck equation on the positive real line modeling nucleation and growth of clusters. The main feature of the equation is the dependence of the driving vector field andExpand

This work considers gradient structures for the Becker–Döring equation and its macroscopic limits. The result of Niethammer [J. Nonlinear Sci. 13 (2003) 115–122] is extended to prove the convergenceExpand
Temporal oscillations in Becker–Döring equations with atomization
We prove that time-periodic solutions arise via Hopf bifurcation in a finite closed system of coagulation-fragmentation equations. The system we treat is a variant of the Becker-Doering equations, inExpand
Steady oscillations in aggregation-fragmentation processes.
It is shown that an assumption of a steady-state distribution of cluster sizes, compatible with governing equations, yields a power law with an exponential cutoff, which is rather striking for a closed system of Smoluchowski-like equations, lacking any sinks and sources of mass. Expand
Deterministic and Stochastic Becker–Döring Equations: Past and Recent Mathematical Developments
Becker and Dorimy introduced their equations in 1935 to describes nucleation in supersaturated vapors. Since then, these equations have been popularized to a wide range of applications and Slemrod inExpand
Julia: A Fresh Approach to Numerical Computing
The Julia programming language and its design is introduced---a dance between specialization and abstraction, which recognizes what remains the same after computation, and which is best left untouched as they have been built by the experts. Expand
