Abstract

In this thesis, I studied the dynamics of granular matter by means of theory, simulations, and experiments. I studied how patterns emerge from a seemly unrelated ensemble of grains in different configurations. I focused on cluster formations in free cooling granular gases, developed an algorithm for cluster-cluster formation, and discovered a new way to control the segregation pattern in rotating tumblers, something with obvious practical importance.
