Fluctuations in glassy systems

  title={Fluctuations in glassy systems},
  author={Claudio Chamon and L. F. Cugliandolo},
We summarize a theoretical framework based on global timereparametrization invariance that explains the origin of dynamic fluctuations in glassy systems. We introduce the main ideas without getting into much technical details. We describe a number of consequences arising from this scenario that can be tested numerically and experimentally, distinguishing those that can also be explained by other mechanisms from the ones that we believe are special to our proposal. We support our claims by… CONTINUE READING
