The random Lorentz gas (RLG) is a minimal model for transport in disordered media. Despite the broad relevance of the model, theoretical grasp over its properties remains weak. For instance, the scaling with dimension d of its localization transition at the void percolation threshold is not well controlled analytically nor computationally. A recent study [Biroli et al., Phys. Rev. E 103, L030104 (2021)2470-004510.1103/PhysRevE.103.L030104] of the caging behavior of the RLG motivated by the mean… 



Mean-Field Caging in a Random Lorentz Gas.

This work expands on the d → ∞ physics by considering a simpler static solution as well as the dynamical solution of the RLG, and reveals that even perturbative corrections fall out of reach of existing theoretical descriptions.

Critical dynamics of ballistic and Brownian particles in a heterogeneous environment.

The dynamic properties of a classical tracer particle in a random, disordered medium are investigated close to the localization transition and suggest that apparent power laws with varying exponents generically occur and dominate experimentally accessible time windows as soon as the heterogeneities cover a decade in length scale.

The localization transition of the two-dimensional Lorentz model

Abstract. We investigate the dynamics of a single tracer particle performing Brownian motion in a two-dimensional course of randomly distributed hard obstacles. At a certain critical obstacle

Effect of dimensionality on the continuum percolation of overlapping hyperspheres and hypercubes. II. Simulation results and analyses.

The present investigation provides additional analytical results for certain cluster statistics, such as the concentration of k-mers and related quantities, and obtains an upper bound on the percolation threshold η(c), and provides accurate analytical estimates of the pair connectedness function and blocking function for any d as a function of density.

Hopping and the Stokes–Einstein relation breakdown in simple glass formers

This work investigates hopping between localized cages formed by neighboring particles in a model that allows to cleanly isolate that effect, and obtains insights into how hopping induces a breakdown of the Stokes–Einstein relation and modifies the mean-field scenario in experimental systems.

Simultaneous analysis of three-dimensional percolation models

We simulate the bond and site percolation models on several three-dimensional lattices, including the diamond, body-centered cubic, and face-centered cubic lattices. As on the simple-cubic lattice

Glassy dynamics of partially pinned fluids: An alternative mode-coupling approach

We propose a simple mode-coupling theory for glassy dynamics of partially pinned fluids. Our approach is different from the mode-coupling theory developed by Krakoviack (Phys. Rev. Lett., 94 (2005)

Slow dynamics in random media: Crossover from glass to localization transition

We study slow dynamics of particles moving in a matrix of immobile obstacles using molecular-dynamics simulations. The glass transition point decreases drastically as the obstacle density increases.

From discrete to continuous percolation in dimensions 3 to 7

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.
