Abstract

A differentially weighted operator splitting Monte Carlo (DWOSMC) method is developed to solve complex aerosol dynamic processes by coupling the differentially weighted Monte Carlo method and the operator splitting technique. This method is validated by analytical solutions and a sectional method in different aerosol dynamic processes. It is first validated in coagulation and condensation processes, and nucleation and coagulation processes, and then validated through simultaneous nucleation, coagulation, and condensation processes. The results show that the DWOSMC method is a computationally efficient and quantitatively accurate method for simulating complex aerosol dynamic processes.
