The cuprate high-temperature superconductors have been the focus of unprecedentedly intense and sustained study not only because of their high superconducting transition temperatures, but also because they represent the most exquisitely investigated examples of highly correlated electronic materials. In particular, the pseudogap regime of the phase diagram(More)
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 apparent complexity of the process, two features are particularly important: 1) the adsorption is often irreversible on experimental time scales and 2) the adsorption rate is limited(More)
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 occurs in many different liquids seems to call for a " universal " theory. In this article, we review one such theoretical approach which is based on the concept of "(More)
We investigate both analytically and by numerical simulation the kinetics of a microscopic model of hard rods adsorbing on a linear substrate, a model which is relevant for compaction of granular materials. The computer simulations use an event-driven algorithm which is particularly efficient at very long times. For a small, but finite desorption rate, the(More)
We provide a framework to build periodic boundary conditions on the pseudosphere (or hyperbolic plane), the infinite two-dimensional Riemannian space of constant negative curvature. Starting from the common case of periodic boundary conditions in the Euclidean plane, we introduce all the needed mathematical notions and sketch a classification of periodic(More)
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 correlated during the structural relaxation of supercooled liquids. We first discuss in detail the physical content of three-point functions that relate the sensitivity of(More)
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 is well identified and the amount of frustration opposing the spatial extension of this order is tunable, we provide insight into the structural origin of the main(More)
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 new analysis of simulation and experimental data on liquid ortho-terphenyl, we conclude that a zeroth-order description of the approach to the glass transition (in(More)
Phase diagram of an Ising model with long-range frustrating interactions: a theoretical analysis. Abstract We present a theoretical study of the phase diagram of a frustrated Ising model with nearest-neighbor ferromagnetic interactions and long-range (Coulombic) antiferromagnetic interactions. For nonzero frustration, long-range ferromagnetic order is(More)
