Growing timescales and lengthscales characterizing vibrations of amorphous solids.
(Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A, 2016-07-26)
Low-temperature properties of crystalline solids can be understood using harmonic perturbations around a perfect lattice, as in Debye's theory. Low-temperature properties of amorphous solids, however, strongly depart from ...
Numerical detection of the Gardner transition in a mean-field glass former.
(Phys Rev E Stat Nonlin Soft Matter Phys, 2015-07)
Recent theoretical advances predict the existence, deep into the glass phase, of a novel phase transition, the so-called Gardner transition. This transition is associated with the emergence of a complex free energy landscape ...
