Granular topic monitors quite a few peculiarities that distinguish it from different appearances studied in condensed topic physics and renders its total mathematical modelling slightly laborious. fashionable instructions within the modelling granular flows are analyzed from quite a few issues of view. Foundational concerns, numerical schemes and experimental effects are mentioned. the amount furnishes a slightly whole review of the present examine tendencies within the mechanics of granular subject. quite a few chapters introduce the reader to diversified issues of view and comparable thoughts. New versions describing granular our bodies as advanced our bodies are awarded. effects at the research of the inelastic Boltzmann equations are amassed in numerous chapters. Gallavotti-Cohen symmetry can be discussed.

Possible proﬁles of the spectral function µ(p) In the case (1) when µ(p) → ∞ as p → 0, two possible pictures (with and without minimum) are shown on Fig. 1b and Fig. 1a, respectively. In case (2), from (42) it is clear that λ(p) grows exponentially for large p, therefore µ(p) → ∞ as p → ∞. Then the minimum always exists and we can distinguish two cases: µ(p0 ) < 0 (Fig. 1d) and µ(p0 ) > 0 (Fig. 1c). We note that, for Maxwell models (A), (B), (C) of Boltzmann equation (Sects. 2 and 3), only cases (a) and (b) of Fig.
