This chapter introduces the main theoretical approaches and models employed in the physics of granular media, such as the kinetic theory of diluted granular gases, various methods of molecular dynamics simulations (event driven, soft particles, contact dynamics), order parameter phase-field models, depth-averaged and two-phase models of dense flows, and a variety of other phenomenological theories.

Keywords:   kinetic theory, granual gases, phase-field, two-phase model, molecular dynamics
