@article{Jin2014DimensionalSO, title={Dimensional study of the dynamical arrest in a random Lorentz gas.}, author={Yuliang Jin and Patrick Charbonneau}, journal={Physical review. E, Statistical, nonlinear, and soft matter physics}, year={2014}, volume={91 4}, pages={ 042313 } }

The random Lorentz gas (RLG) is a minimal model for transport in heterogeneous media. Upon increasing the obstacle density, it exhibits a growing subdiffusive transport regime and then a dynamical arrest. Here, we study the dimensional dependence of the dynamical arrest, which can be mapped onto the void percolation transition for Poisson-distributed point obstacles. We numerically determine the arrest in dimensions d=2-6. Comparison of the results with standard mode-coupling theory reveals…

### Diffusion, subdiffusion, and localization of active colloids in random post lattices.

- PhysicsPhysical review. E
- 2017

It is demonstrated that motile colloids cruising at constant speed through random lattices undergo a smooth transition from diffusive to subdiffusive to localized dynamics upon increasing the obstacle density, and the nature of these transitions is elucidated by performing extensive simulations constructed from a detailed analysis of the colloid-obstacle interactions.

Based on various results present in the literature, we elaborate a unifying cluster percolation approach to interpret the dynamical arrest occurring in amorphous materials such as those of the gel,…

### Crowding of Interacting Fluid Particles in Porous Media through Molecular Dynamics: Breakdown of Universality for Soft Interactions.

- PhysicsPhysical review letters
- 2018

The soft interactions are responsible for the breakdown of the universality of the dynamics of the Lorentz model scenario, as the system exhibits a transition from a diffusive to a localized state, but the transition is strongly rounded.

### Dynamics around the site percolation threshold on high-dimensional hypercubic lattices.

The computational validation employs accelerated random walk simulations with a transfer-matrix description of diffusion to evaluate directly the dynamical critical exponents below d_{u} as well as their logarithmic scaling above d{u}.

### Anomalous transport in the soft-sphere Lorentz model.

- PhysicsSoft matter
- 2019

This work extends the highly simplified Lorentz model towards realistic natural systems by modeling the interactions between the tracer and the obstacles with a smooth potential, and finds that the anomalous transport at the critical point happens to be governed by the same universal exponent as for hard exclusion interactions.

### A microscopic model of the Stokes-Einstein relation in arbitrary dimension.

This work revisits the work of Masters and Madden, who first solved a statistical mechanics model of the Stokes-Einstein relation using the projection operator formalism, and reproduces the SER-like result from the exact dynamics of infinite-dimensional fluids.

We investigate a three-dimensional kinetically-constrained model that exhibits two types of phase transitions at different densities. At the jamming density ρJ there is a mixed-order phase transition…

### Tracer transport in attractive and repulsive supercooled liquids and glasses.

- PhysicsThe Journal of chemical physics
- 2019

This study uses event-driven molecular dynamics to investigate the transport of small, hard-sphere tracers embedded in matrices of square-well particles and reveals that tracer transport in these supercooled liquids and glasses is influenced by the matrix structure and dynamics.

### From discrete to continuous percolation in dimensions 3 to 7

- Mathematics, Computer Science
- 2016

The convergence of a discrete model to its continuous limit is controlled by a power-law dependency with a universal exponent θ=3/2, which allows us to estimate the continuous percolation thresholds in a model of aligned hypercubes in dimensions d=3,…,7 with accuracy far better than that attained using any other method before.
