Description 
When a deep bed of granular material is subject to vertical, sinusoidal oscillations, a number of phenomena appear including two regimes of standing surface waves that form at onehalf and onequarter of the oscillation forcing frequency. These waves are referred to as f/2 and f/4 waves where f is the oscillation frequency. This paper presents the results from experiments and computer simulations designed to study the wavelength and wave amplitude dependence of the surface waves on the vibration parameters, collision coefficient of restriction, and the particle bed depth.
