    • A nontrivial critical fixed point for replica-symmetry-breaking transitions 

      Charbonneau, Patrick; Yaida, Sho (2017-04-01)
      The transformation of the free-energy landscape from smooth to hierarchical is one of the richest features of mean-field disordered systems. A well-studied example is the de Almeida-Thouless transition for spin glasses in ...
    • Breaking the glass ceiling: Configurational entropy measurements in extremely supercooled liquids 

      Berthier, Ludovic; Charbonneau, Patrick; Coslovich, Daniele; Ninarello, Andrea; Ozawa, M; Yaida, Sho (2017-06-01)
      Liquids relax extremely slowly on approaching the glass state. One explanation is that an entropy crisis, due to the rarefaction of available states, makes it increasingly arduous to reach equilibrium in that regime. Validating ...
    • Configurational entropy measurements in extremely supercooled liquids that break the glass ceiling. 

      Berthier, Ludovic; Charbonneau, Patrick; Coslovich, Daniele; Ninarello, Andrea; Ozawa, Misaki; Yaida, Sho (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America, 2017-10-10)
      Liquids relax extremely slowly on approaching the glass state. One explanation is that an entropy crisis, because of the rarefaction of available states, makes it increasingly arduous to reach equilibrium in that regime. ...
    • Efficient measurement of point-to-set correlations and overlap fluctuations in glass-forming liquids. 

      Berthier, Ludovic; Charbonneau, Patrick; Yaida, Sho (J Chem Phys, 2016-01-14)
      Cavity point-to-set correlations are real-space tools to detect the roughening of the free-energy landscape that accompanies the dynamical slowdown of glass-forming liquids. Measuring these correlations in model glass formers ...
    • Linking dynamical heterogeneity to static amorphous order 

      Charbonneau, Patrick; Dyer, E; Lee, J; Yaida, Sho (Journal of Statistical Mechanics: Theory and Experiment, 2016-07-01)
      © 2016 IOP Publishing Ltd and SISSA Medialab srl. Glass-forming liquids grow dramatically sluggish upon cooling. This slowdown has long been thought to be accompanied by a growing correlation length. Characteristic dynamical ...
    • Lyapunov exponent and susceptibility 

      Charbonneau, Patrick; Li, Y; Pfister, HD; Yaida, Sho (2017-08-23)
      Lyapunov exponents characterize the chaotic nature of dynamical systems by quantifying the growth rate of uncertainty associated with imperfect measurement of the initial conditions. Finite-time estimates of the exponent, ...
    • Nontrivial Critical Fixed Point for Replica-Symmetry-Breaking Transitions. 

      Charbonneau, Patrick; Yaida, Sho (Phys Rev Lett, 2017-05-26)
      The transformation of the free-energy landscape from smooth to hierarchical is one of the richest features of mean-field disordered systems. A well-studied example is the de Almeida-Thouless transition for spin glasses in ...
    • Point-to-set lengths, local structure, and glassiness. 

      Berthier, Ludovic; Charbonneau, Patrick; Tarjus, Gilles; Yaida, Sho (Phys Rev E, 2016-09)
      The growing sluggishness of glass-forming liquids is thought to be accompanied by growing structural order. The nature of such order, however, remains hotly debated. A decade ago, point-to-set (PTS) correlation lengths were ...
