Granular Mode-Coupling Theory


Recently, we were able to generalize mode-coupling theory to the far from equilibrium stationary state of a randomly driven granular fluid [Kranz, Sperl, Zippelius, PRE 87, 022207 (2013)]. Explaining how granular mode coupling theory works, I will place a particular emphasis on the assumptions and approximations involved. This will allow me to discuss several possibilities for further improvement. I will also briefly discuss the relation to the integration through transients approach to nonequilibrium mode coupling theory.
