Abstract: We prove the existence and uniqueness of a solution to the Smoluchowski coagulation equation with source terms. The coagulation equation with source terms is potentially useful in applications because one sometimes tries to control coagulation processes by the introduction of particles of various sizes into the system. The existence proof given here differs in style from most other existence proofs in two respects. First, it is not based on a finite-dimensional truncation of the coagulation equation; and secondly, it is achieved with a weaker hypothesis than is usually assumed on the initial data.
