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 ...
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 ...
