Geometrical Frustration and Static Correlations in a Simple Glass Former
(American Physical Society, 2012-01-18)
We study the geometrical frustration scenario of glass formation for simple hard-sphere models. We find that the dual picture in terms of defects brings little insight and no theoretical simplification for the understanding ...
Geometrical frustration and static correlations in hard-sphere glass formers
(American Institute of Physics, 2013-03-28)
We analytically and numerically characterize the structure of hard-sphere fluids in order to review various geometrical frustration scenarios of the glass transition. We find generalized polytetrahedral order to be correlated ...
Dimensional dependence of the Stokes-Einstein relation and its violation
(American Institute of Physics, 2013-10-28)
We generalize to higher spatial dimensions the Stokes-Einstein relation (SER) as well as the leading correction to diffusivity in finite systems with periodic boundary conditions, and validate these results with numerical ...
