Using computer simulation, we have studied the random sequential adsorption of stiff linear segments (needles) onto a square lattice. Each such particle occupies $k$ adjacent lattice sites, thence, it is frequently called a $k$-mer. During deposition, the two mutually perpendicular orientations of the particles are equiprobable, hence, a macroscopically isotropic monolayer is formed. However, this monolayer is locally anisotropic, since the deposited particles tend to form so-called ``stacks…

Random sequential adsorption of polydisperse mixtures on discrete substrates.
The results suggest that the order of symmetry axis of the shape may exert a decisive influence on adsorption kinetics of each mixture component, and how the quantities such as jamming coverage theta_{jam} and the relaxation time sigma depend on the mixture composition.
Random sequential adsorption of polydisperse mixtures on lattices.
Random sequential adsorption of linear and square particles with excluded volume interaction is studied numerically on planar lattices considering Gaussian distributions of lateral sizes of the
Random sequential adsorption of polyatomic species
The dependence of the terminal relaxation time σ (which determine how fast the lattice is filled up to the jamming coverage) on the parameters of the problem is established through a theoretical approach and a strategy for determining σ by means of a computational algorithm is presented.
Random sequential adsorption and diffusion of dimers and k-mers on a square lattice
We have performed extensive simulations of random sequential adsorption and diffusion of k-mers, up to k=5 in two dimensions with particular attention to the case k=2. We focus on the behavior of the
Percolation and jamming of random sequential adsorption samples of large lineark-mers on a square lattice
It is proved that any cluster at jamming is percolating cluster and that percolation occurs before jamming and the theorem of G.~Kondrat, Z.~Koza, and P.~Brzeski is generalized to the case of periodic boundary conditions.
Introdzution. The shapes of colloidal particles are often reasonably compact, so that no diameter greatly exceeds the cube root of the volume of the particle. On the other hand, we know many coiloids
