Short summary
In the last decade, several Lagrangian microphysical models (LCMs) have been developed which use a large number of (computational) particles to represent a cloud. In particular, the collision process leading to coalescence of cloud droplets or aggregation of ice crystals is implemented differently in various models. Three existing implementations are reviewed and extended, and their performance is evaluated by a comparison with well established analytical and bin model solutions.
