Abstract

Granular media are very common in nature and technology but present, due to the inelasticity of the collisions between grains very astonishing collective phenomena. One of them is the spontaneous formation of clusters as observed in intergalactic dust. We will discuss the role of dissipation in these effects and show recent progress in the understanding of the deviation from classical thermodynamics.
