Diffusion Limited Aggregation in Continuous 2D Space Model 

written by Larry Engelhardt

The Diffusion Limited Aggregation in Continuous 2D Space Model simulates the formation of a cluster using a random-walk process called "diffusion limited aggregation" (DLA).  The cluster formed by this process is an example of a fractal, and the simulation can be extended to calculate and analyze the fractal dimension.

The Diffusion Limited Aggregation in Continuous 2D Space Model was developed using the Easy Java Simulations (EJS) modeling tool.  It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive.  Double clicking the ejs_fmu_DLA_continuous_2D.jar file will run the program if Java is installed.  You can modify this simulation if you have EJS installed by right-clicking within the plot and selecting "Open Ejs Model" from the pop-up menu item.
