This chapter begins with a discussion of linearized equations for hydrodynamic modes. It then discusses stability analysis of the hydrodynamic modes and structure formation, and structure formation as a transient process. The stability analysis of hydrodynamic equations for a gas of viscoleastic particles shows that the conditions of instability for shear and heat modes depend on time. Thus, structure formation in granular gases is a transient process. Over time, the granular gas returns to the homogeneous cooling state.

Keywords:   hydrodynamic equations, linearized equations, structure formation, granular gas
