A computationally efficient Monte Carlo method using majorant kernel scheme for particle coagulation is presented in this note. The key is to use majorant kernel in the evaluation of the maximum coagulation rate, which is computationally time consuming, in hope of reducing the computational cost. The proposed scheme is verified by means of a deterministic sectional method for Brownian collision kernel. The computational efficiency of the scheme proposed has also been measured by comparing with sectional method and Monte Carlo methods using other schemes.
