Abstract: A quadratic evolution equation of the form

$\displaystyle \dot u = Lu + \epsilon Qu$

is considered where $ L$ and $ Q$ are particular linear and quadratic integral operators respectively. This equation has been proposed to describe the variation with time of $ u(x,t)$, the volume density of an ensemble of particles undergoing concurrent coalescence and fracture.
