- [26] More precisely, the factor (Ri + Rj)d−2 in Smoluchowski formula should be replaced by 1/ ln(Ri + Rj) in 2D; here we ignore this slowly varying logarithmic factor.

- [31] We are mostly interested in the steady state, so to make formulas less cluttered we write ck instead of ck(∞).
- [32] Thus we cannot determine the steady state cluster density M0. The same holds for models considered in Sect. II A.
- [33] This follows from (16) with a = 1/3, b = −1/3.

- [39] This calculation is formal because we have previously assumed C(a) to be independent of m.
