The dynamics of a one-dimensional granular medium has a finite time singularity if the number of particles in the medium is greater than a certain critical value. The singularity (“inelastic collapse”) occurs when a group of particles collides infinitely often in a finite time so that the separations and relative velocities vanish. To avoid the finite time… (More)
