Abstract

Liquids equilibrated below an onset condition share similar inherent states, while those above that onset have inherent states that markedly differ. Although this type of materials memory was first reported in simulations over 20 years ago, its physical origin remains controversial. Its absence from mean-field descriptions, in particular, has long cast doubt on its thermodynamic relevance. Motivated by a recent theoretical proposal, we reassess the onset phenomenology in simulations using a fast hard sphere jamming algorithm and find it to be both thermodynamically and dimensionally robust. Remarkably, we also uncover a second type of memory associated with a Gardner-like regime of the jamming algorithm.
