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, ...
Glass transition and random close packing above three dimensions.
(Phys Rev Lett, 2011-10-28)
Motivated by a recently identified severe discrepancy between a static and a dynamic theory of glasses, we numerically investigate the behavior of dense hard spheres in spatial dimensions 3 to 12. Our results are consistent ...
