Research of processes involving Nanoclusters and Microparticles has been developing fast in many fields of recent research, in particular in materials science. To stay at the cutting edge of this development, a sound understanding of the processes is needed. In this work, several processes involving small particles are described, such as transport processes in gases, charging of small particles in gases, chemical processes, atom attachment and quenching of excited atomic particles on surfaces, nucleation, coagulation, coalescence and growth processes for particles and aggregates. This work presents the mathematical models to understand these processes. It analyses examples of real objects and processes. Each analysis is complemented by analytic formulas or simple models which allow us to calculate or estimate process parameters.
