1-dimensinal dimer adsorption model
n= average total number of heads per lattice site
n_1= average number of dimers bound with one head
n_d= average number dimers bound with both heads
heads per lattice site
Parameters
All reaction rates are given in inverse seconds
- k_{1+} c Association rate for the first head
- k_{2+}^{b} Association rate for the second head at the left
of the first one
- k_{2+}^{f} Association rate for the second head at the right
of the first one
- k_{2-}^{b} Dissociation rate for the left head of a double-bonded dimer
- k_{2-}^{f} Dissociation rate for the right head of a double-bonded dimer
- k_{1-} Dissociation rate for a single-bonded dimer
Dimensionless ratios:
K_{1}=k_{1+}/k_{1-}
K_{2}=k_{2+}^{f}/k_{2-}^{f}=k_{2+}^{b}/k_{2-}^{b}
Predefined parameter sets
Three parameter sets showing interesting cases can be retrieved through
buttons at the bottom. These include:
- Irreversible decoration: No dissociation, binding
of the second head on both sides much faster than the binding first
one.
- Explicit diffusion: K_{1}=0.1, K_{2}=1000, symmetric association of the second head
- No explicit diffusion: K_{1}=0.1, K_{2}=1000, association of the second head only to one side
