Two models of coagulation are presented: one, a system of coupled partial differential equations and the other microscopic Brownian particles. Both models feature a parameter that represents the tendency of two particles to coagulate at sufficiently close distances. Both models have a phase transition, viewed as the mass clumping together as a gel. Previous work has shown the models are connected, and in here we show that their phase transition to instantaneous gelation is connected as well.
