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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
