We have investigated analytically and numerically the liquid-glass transition of hard spheres for dimensions d-->infinity in the framework of mode-coupling theory. The numerical results for the critical collective and self-nonergodicity parameters fc(k;d) and fc(s)(k;d) exhibit non-Gaussian k dependence even up to d=800.fc(s)(k;d) and fc(k;d) differ for k approximately d1/2, but become identical on a scale k approximately d, which is proven analytically. The critical packing fraction phic(d… CONTINUE READING
