Universal microstructure and mechanical stability of jammed packings.
(Phys Rev Lett, 2012-11-16)
The mechanical properties of jammed packings depend sensitively on their detailed local structure. Here we provide a complete characterization of the pair correlation close to contact and of the force distribution of jammed ...
Dimensional study of the caging order parameter at the glass transition.
(Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A, 2012-08-28)
The glass problem is notoriously hard and controversial. Even at the mean-field level, little is agreed upon regarding why a fluid becomes sluggish while exhibiting but unremarkable structural changes. It is clear, however, ...
