Title: Dissipative collapse of the adiabatic piston

Abstract: An adiabatic piston, separating two granular gases prepared in the same macroscopic state, is found to eventually collapse to one of the sides. This new instability is explained by a simple macroscopic theory which is furthermore in qualitative agreement with hard-disk molecular dynamics.
