Abstract

A standard model for pure fragmentation is subjected to an initial condition of Dirac-delta type. Results for a corresponding abstract Cauchy problem are derived via the theory of equicontinuous semigroups of operators on locally convex spaces. An explicit solution is obtained for the case of a power-law kernel. Rigorous justification is thereby provided for results obtained more formally by Ziff and McGrady.
