We present an analytic study of a dynamical instability in a periodic long-range Josephson array frustrated by a weak transverse field. This glass transition is characterized by a diverging relaxation time and a jump in the Edwards-Anderson order parameter; it is not accompanied by a coinciding static transition.

An experimentally realizable weiss model for disorder-free glassiness
We summarize recent work on a frustrated periodic long-range Josephson array in a parameter regime where its dynamical behavior is identical to that of the p=4 disordered spherical model. We also
Quantum glass transition in a periodic long-range Josephson array
AbstractWe show that the ground state of a periodic long-range Josephson array frustrated by a magnetic field is a glass for sufficiently large Josephson energies despite the absence of quenched
A replica method for the deterministic spin model with long range interactions
We discuss the spin glass states of the deterministic spin model with long range anti-ferromagnetic interactions. To apply the replica method, the partial statistical summation with fixed overlap

The Vogel-Fulcher law is shown to be related to the search time through the energy landscape of an “entropic droplet” in exactly solvable spin glass models and in globular random heteropolymers.
A replica mean field theory for the long range anti-ferromagnetic spin models
We study the long range anti-ferromagnetic Ising spin models defined on one- and two-dimensional lattices by using a replica method for the deterministic spin models. In the long range limit, the
Structural glass on a lattice in the limit of infinite dimensions
We construct a mean-field theory for the lattice model of a structural glass and solve it using the replica method and one-step replica symmetry breaking ansatz; this theory becomes exact in the
Disorder effects on glassy dynamics: Separation of orientational and positional correlations
Abstract The pressure dependence of the spectral distributions of the glass (i.e. amorphous), orientational glass (OG) and stable (monoclinic) crystal phases of ethanol is investigated by means of
LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Replica-symmetry breaking in long-range glass models without quenched disorder
We discuss mean-field theory of glasses without quenched disorder focusing on the justification of the replica approach to thermodynamics. We emphasize the assumptions implicit in this method and
Microscopic dynamics in glasses in relation to that shown by other complex systems
The relevance of studies on orientational and/or rotationally disordered crystals is discussed within the context of glass-forming and other systems exhibiting the basic aspects of glassy behaviour.
Distribution of attraction basins in a family of simple glasses
We study the distribution of attraction basins as a function of energy in simple glasses. We find that it is always broad. Furthermore, we identify two types of glass, both with an exponentially
