From car parking to protein adsorption: an overview of sequential adsorption processes
Abstract The adsorption or adhesion of large particles (proteins, colloids, cells,…) at the liquid–solid interface plays an important role in many diverse applications. Despite the apparentExpand

TOPICAL REVIEW: The frustration-based approach of supercooled liquids and the glass transition: a review and critical assessment
One of the most spectacular phenomena in physics in terms of dynamical range is the glass transition and the associated slowing down of flow and relaxation with decreasing temperature. That it occursExpand

Spatial correlations in the dynamics of glassforming liquids: experimental determination of their temperature dependence.
We use recently introduced three-point dynamic susceptibilities to obtain an experimental determination of the temperature evolution of the number of molecules Ncorr that are dynamically correlatedExpand

Nonperturbative effect of attractive forces in viscous liquids.
We study the role of the attractive intermolecular forces in the viscous regime of a simple glass-forming liquid by using computer simulations. To this end, we compare the structure and the dynamicsExpand

Capillary condensation in disordered porous materials: hysteresis versus equilibrium behavior.
We study the interplay between hysteresis and equilibrium behavior in capillary condensation of fluids in mesoporous disordered materials via a mean-field density functional theory of a disorderedExpand

Growing static and dynamic length scales in a glass-forming liquid.
We investigate the characteristic length scales associated with the glass transition phenomenon. By studying an atomic glass-forming liquid in negatively curved space, for which the local order isExpand

Critical test of the mode-coupling theory of the glass transition.
In its common implementation, the mode-coupling theory of the glass transition predicts the time evolution of the intermediate scattering functions in viscous liquids on the sole basis of theExpand

Periodic boundary conditions on the pseudosphere
We provide a framework for building periodic boundary conditions on the pseudosphere (or hyperbolic plane), the infinite two-dimensional Riemannian space of constant negative curvature. Starting fromExpand

Disentangling density and temperature effects in the viscous slowing down of glassforming liquids.
We present a consistent picture of the respective role of density (rho) and temperature (T) in the viscous slowing down of glassforming liquids and polymers. Specifically, based in part upon a newExpand

The role of attractive forces in viscous liquids.
We present evidence from computer simulation that the slowdown of relaxation of a standard Lennard-Jones glass-forming liquid and that of its reduction to a model with truncated pair potentialsExpand
