Three commonly used numerical schemes for condensational growth of aerosols are compared with analytical solutions. The sectional method is interpreted in light of the upwind differencing and the Smolarkiewicz method. Case studies for fast and slow condensation processes are used to demonstrate the performance of various numerical schemes.
