Diffusion-limited aggregation is the process whereby particles undergoing a random walk due to Brownian motion cluster together to form aggregates of such particles [1]. This theory, proposed by Witten and Sander in 1981 [2], is applicable to aggregation in any system where diffusion is the primary means of transport in the system [1].
