This chapter shows that for granular gases of viscoelastic particles, the shape of the velocity distribution function cannot be described by a time-dependent function. Instead, it evolves along with decaying temperature. Its complicated time dependence allows the definition of the age of a granular gas.

Keywords:   granular gases, viscoelastic particles, velocity distribution function
