A new class of efficient stochastic algorithms for the numerical treatment of coagulation processes is proposed. The algorithms are based on the introduction of fictitious jumps combined with an acceptance-rejection technique for distributions depending on particle size. The increased efficiency is demonstrated by numerical experiments. In particular, gelation phenomena are studied.
