Fractal free energy landscapes in structural glasses.
(Nat Commun, 2014-04-24)
Glasses are amorphous solids whose constituent particles are caged by their neighbours and thus cannot flow. This sluggishness is often ascribed to the free energy landscape containing multiple minima (basins) separated ...
Glass and Jamming Transitions: From Exact Results to Finite-Dimensional Descriptions
Despite decades of work, gaining a first-principle understanding of amorphous materials remains an extremely challenging problem. However, recent theoretical breakthroughs have led to the formulation of an exact solution ...
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 ...
