Abstract
We consider the behaviour of solutions to the continuous constantrate coagulationfragmentation equation in the vicinity of an equilibrium solution. Semigroup methods are used to show that the governing linear equation for a perturbation epsilon(x,t) has a unique globally defined solution for suitable initial conditions. In addition, Laplace transforms and the method of characteristics lead to an explicit formula for epsilon. The longterm behavior of epsilon is also discussed.
