Abstract
Experimental studies on the irreversible growth of field-induced chains of dipolar particles suggest an asymptotic power-law behavior of several relevant quantities. We introduce a Monte Carlo model of chain growth that explicitly incorporates the anisotropic diffusion characteristic of a rodlike object. Assuming a simple power-law form for the mean cluster size S(t)~tz, the results of our model are in good agreement with the experimental measurements of the dynamic exponent z. Nevertheless, an ...
