This paper deals with a method of describing the asymptotic behaviour of the Fokker-Planck equation. The nucleation rate, J(t), approaches a steady state as J(t) = Js[1 - exp(-t/tlag)] with 1/(6.3a(lc)Z2) ≥ tlag ≥ 1/(12.0a(lc)Z2), where Js is the steady state nucleation rate, Z is the Zeldvitch factor and a(lc) the rate at which monomers are absorbed by a cluster with critical size lc. This result agrees with the numerical calculation by Kanne-Dannetschek and Stauffe and the prevoius theory.
