Scalings for a ballistic aggregation equation
Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute
We consider a mean field type equation for ballistic aggregation of particles whose density function depends both on the mass and impulsion of the particles. For the case of a constant aggregation rate the existence of self-similar solutions and the convergence of more general solutions to them is proven.The large time decay of some moments of general solutions is estimated. Some new classes of self-similar solutions for several classes of mass and/or impulsion dependent rates are obtained.
