%TA Geometric Approach to Inelastic Collapse
%XWe show how to interpret logarithmic spiral tilings as one-dimensional particle systems undergoing inelastic collapse. By deforming the spirals appropriately, we can simulate collisions among particles with distinct or varying coefficients of restitution. Our geometric constructions provide a strikingly simple illustration of a widely studied phenomenon in the
physics of dissipative gases: the collapse of inelastic particles.
