Statistical mechanics of coupled supercooled liquids in finite dimensions.

  author={Benjamin Guiselin and Ludovic Berthier and Gilles Tarjus},
  journal={arXiv: Statistical Mechanics},
We study the statistical mechanics of supercooled liquids when the system evolves at a temperature $T$ with a linear coupling of amplitude $\epsilon$ to its overlap with a reference configuration of the same liquid sampled at a temperature $T_0$. We use mean-field theory to fully characterize the influence of the reference temperature $T_0$, and we mainly study the case of a fixed, low-$T_0$ value in computer simulations. We numerically investigate the extended phase diagram in the $(\epsilon,T…

Understanding molecular simulation: from algorithms to applications
The physics behind the "recipes" of molecular simulation for materials science is explained and the implementation of simulation methods is illustrated in pseudocodes and their practical use in the case studies used in the text.
An overview of the theories of the glass transition
The topic of the glass transition gives rise to a a wide diversity of views. It is, accordingly, characterized by a lack of agreement on which would be the most profitable theoretical perspective. In
