Smoluchowski's equation: Rate of convergence of the Marcus-Lushnikov process
We derive a satisfying rate of convergence of the Marcus-Lushnikov process towards the solution to Smoluchowski's coagulation equation. Our result applies to a class of homogeneous-like coagulation kernels with homogeneity degree ranging in (-[infinity],1]. It relies on the use of a Wasserstein-type distance, which has shown to be particularly well-adapted to coalescence phenomena. It was introduced and used in preceding works (Fournier and Laurençot (2006) ) and (Fournier and Löcherbach (2009) ).
