Comparison of T3 direct and hierarchical assembly. a), b) and c) show the first passage times FPT(60), FPT(120) and FPT(150) together with the relative yield of the corresponding cluster size for fixed k
=9.0 ns−1. Blue and red boxes show the results for direct and hierarchical assembly, respectively. The data points are obtained from 10 simulation runs. The maximum simulation length of 9·106ns represents the upper boundary of the FPT values.
