Glassy dynamics in granular compaction: sand on random graphs.


We discuss the use of a ferromagnetic spin model on a random graph to model granular compaction. A multispin interaction is used to capture the competition between local and global satisfaction of constraints characteristic for geometric frustration. We define an athermal dynamics designed to model repeated taps of a given strength. Amplitude cycling and… (More)
