Breaking the glass ceiling: Configurational entropy measurements in extremely supercooled liquids
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 ...
A nontrivial critical fixed point for replica-symmetry-breaking transitions
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 ...
