#### Universal Non-Debye Scaling in the Density of States of Amorphous Solids.

(Phys Rev Lett, 2016-07-22)

At the jamming transition, amorphous packings are known to display anomalous vibrational
modes with a density of states (DOS) that remains constant at low frequency. The scaling
of the DOS at higher packing fractions remains, ...

#### Crystallization of asymmetric patchy models for globular proteins in solution.

(Phys Rev E Stat Nonlin Soft Matter Phys, 2013-07)

Asymmetric patchy particle models have recently been shown to describe the crystallization
of small globular proteins with near-quantitative accuracy. Here, we investigate how
asymmetry in patch geometry and bond energy ...

#### Geometrical frustration and static correlations in a simple glass former.

(Phys Rev Lett, 2012-01-20)

We study the geometrical frustration scenario of glass formation for simple hard-sphere
models. We find that the dual picture in terms of defects brings little insight and
no theoretical simplification for the understanding ...

#### Emergence of limit-periodic order in tiling models.

(Phys Rev E Stat Nonlin Soft Matter Phys, 2014-07)

A two-dimensional (2D) lattice model defined on a triangular lattice with nearest-
and next-nearest-neighbor interactions based on the Taylor-Socolar monotile is known
to have a limit-periodic ground state. The system reaches ...

#### The physics of protein self-assembly

(Current Opinion in Colloid and Interface Science, 2016-04-01)

© 2016 The Authors. Understanding protein self-assembly is important for many biological
and industrial processes. Proteins can self-assemble into crystals, filaments, gels,
and other amorphous aggregates. The final forms ...

#### Linking dynamical heterogeneity to static amorphous order

(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 ...

#### Recent Advances in the Theory and Simulation of Model Colloidal Microphase Formers.

(J Phys Chem B, 2016-08-18)

This mini-review synthesizes our understanding of the equilibrium behavior of particle-based
models with short-range attractive and long-range repulsive (SALR) interactions. These
models, which can form stable periodic ...

#### Equilibrium Phase Behavior of the Square-Well Linear Microphase-Forming Model.

(J Phys Chem B, 2016-07-07)

We have recently developed a simulation approach to calculate the equilibrium phase
diagram of particle-based microphase formers. Here, this approach is used to calculate
the phase behavior of the square-well linear model ...

#### Exact theory of dense amorphous hard spheres in high dimension. III. the full replica symmetry breaking solution

(Journal of Statistical Mechanics: Theory and Experiment, 2014-10-01)

© 2014 IOP Publishing Ltd. In the first part of this paper, we derive the general
replica equations that describe infinite-dimensional hard spheres at any level of
replica symmetry breaking (RSB) and in particular in the ...

#### Mode-coupling theory

(Journal of Statistical Mechanics: Theory and Experiment, 2005-05-01)

In this set of lecture notes we review the mode-coupling theory of the glass transition
from several perspectives. First, we derive mode-coupling equations for the description
of density fluctuations from microscopic ...
