Summary

The subject of phases in granular matter is not well understood theoretically. Fluidized granular matter can be obtained by vertically vibrating granular layers. The layers exhibit standing-wave patterns when the system has undergone a solid-liquid-like transition.

Clerc et al. do an experimental and theoretical study of a monolayer of grains subjected to vertical vibration. <math>N</math>
