In science:

We determined the criteria for the spontaneous symmetry-breaking instability of the laterally uniform granular cluster (strip state) in a prototypical driven granular gas.
Symmetry-breaking instability in a prototypical driven granular gas
Granular hydrodynamics will be instrumental in delineating the phase diagrams of these systems in the limit of nearly elastic collisions.
Symmetry-breaking instability in a prototypical driven granular gas
This statement is true only for a certain class of boundary conditions: those specifying either the heat flux, or the granular temperature at the boundaries.
Symmetry-breaking instability in a prototypical driven granular gas
Granular hydrodynamics predicts symmetry-breaking instability in a two-dimensional (2D) ensemble of nearly elastically colliding smooth hard spheres driven, at zero gravity, by a rapidly vibrating sidewall.
Symmetry breaking and coarsening of clusters in a prototypical driven granular gas
The number density of grains is n(x, y , t), the granular temperature is T (x, y , t).
Symmetry breaking and coarsening of clusters in a prototypical driven granular gas
In the quasielastic limit, and for small Knudsen numbers, the Navier-Stokes granular hydrodynamics is expected to be reasonably accurate, even for large granular densities, as long as the granulate is in a fluidized state .
Symmetry breaking and coarsening of clusters in a prototypical driven granular gas

Out-of-equilibrium states as statistical equilibria of an effective dynamics
Granularity: The oracle is called once in each iteration of the algorithm; the algorithm returns the average of the solutions returned by the oracle.
Randomized Rounding without Solving the Linear Program
Thus, the granularity of the final solution is the granularity of the solutions returned by the oracle, divided by the number of iterations.
Randomized Rounding without Solving the Linear Program
Because the number of iterations can be less than the upper bound, the algorithms only guarantee a lower bound on the granularity.
Randomized Rounding without Solving the Linear Program
Of course, the lower bound is the difficult part, so it is not surprising that exact control over the granularity can be obtained.
Randomized Rounding without Solving the Linear Program
In order to reduce the cost of the readout electronics, a coarser granularity was used, with a hexagonal cell structure about two times larger than the 4 cm2 of the prototype.
