The mode-coupling theory of liquid-to-glass transitions

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

8 Scopus citations


A mode-coupling theory for supercooled liquid dynamics exhibits bifurcation singularities which cause a temperature Tc for the crossover from liquid to glass behaviour. Near Tc the long-time relaxation is a two-step process related to the experimentally known alpha - and beta -relaxation in structural glass formers. The dynamical anomalies predicted by the theory for the two processes are reviewed.
