Title: Concentration effects on the rates of irreversible diffusion-influenced reactions

We formulate a new theory of the effects of like-particle interactions on the irreversible diffusion-influenced bimolecular reactions of the type A + B → P + B by considering the evolution equation of the triplet ABB number density field explicitly. The solution to the evolution equation is aided by a recently proposed method for solving the Fredholm integral equation of the second kind. We evaluate the theory by comparing its predictions with the results of extensive computer simulations. The present theory provides a reasonable explanation of the simulation results.
