The liquid-glass transition: A review on some new developments

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

3 Scopus citations


The mode coupling theory for the supercooled liquid dynamics exhibits bifurcation singularities which cause a cross over from liquid to glass behaviour at some temperature Tc. Near Tc the relaxation is a two step process specified by two diverging time scales and two time decay fractals. One process describes the known a-relaxation of structural glass formers, in particular the stretching phenomenon. The other is a generalization of the fl-process. The theoretical results correlate with some experimental data on fragile glass formers.
