Irreversible Clustering

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The merging of two clusters to produce a new cluster that conserves mass is one of the most basic mechanisms of size change in dispersed populations. The process is known by many different names: aggregation, agglomeration, coagulation, polymerization, flocculation, and others that refer to the physical aspects of the particular problem at hand. We will use aggregation.
