Erratum: A kinetic equation for granular media. (English) Zbl 0972.74017
Summary: In this short note we correct a conceptual error in the heuristic derivation of a kinetic equation used for the description of a one-dimensional granular medium in the so-called quasi-elastic limit, presented by the same authors in [RAIRO, Modélisation Math. Anal. Numér. 31, No. 5, 615-641 (1997; Zbl 0888.73006)]. The equation we derived is however correct, so that the rigorous analysis of this equation, which constituted the main purpose of that paper, remains unchanged.
