#### Kinetic Theory of Granular Gases

Oxford University Press, UK 2004; US$ 48.99This is the first introductory text in the rapidly growing field of granular gases. In contrast to molecular gases (for example, air), the particles of granular gases, such as a cloud of dust, lose part of their kinetic energy when they collide, giving rise to many exciting physical properties. The book provides a self-contained introduction to the... more...
