@article{Lasanta2015AnIO, title={An itinerant oscillator model with cage inertia for mesorheological granular experiments.}, author={Antonio Lasanta and Andrea Puglisi}, journal={The Journal of chemical physics}, year={2015}, volume={143 6}, pages={ 064511 } }

Recent experiments with a rotating probe immersed in weakly fluidized granular materials show a complex behavior on a wide range of time scales. Viscous-like relaxation at high frequency is accompanied by an almost harmonic dynamical trapping at intermediate times, with possibly anomalous long time behavior in the form of super-diffusion. Inspired by the itinerant oscillator model for diffusion in molecular liquids, and other models with coupled thermostats acting at different time scales, here…

A persistent collective rotational mode which emerges at a high density and a low granular temperature is discovered: a macroscopic fraction of the medium slowly rotates, randomly switching direction after very long times, which is the origin of the probe's superdiffusion.

A vertically shaken granular medium hosts a blade rotating around a fixed vertical axis, which acts as a mesorheological probe, which shows strong caging effects and a power-law decay, likely due to persistent collective fluctuations of the host medium.
