Abstract We discuss the validity and the outcome of a scaling hypothesis proposed by us some years ago, according to which the influence of the density on the slowing down of flow and relaxation in glassforming liquids and polymers is described through a single effective interaction energy E ∞ ( ρ ). We stress the formal consequences and the physical meaning of the scaling. 
On the correlation between fragility and stretching in glass-forming liquids.
TLDR
It is argued that a meaningful correlation is to be looked for between stretching and isochoric fragility, as both seem to be constant under isochronic conditions and thereby reflect the intrinsic effect of temperature.
Experimental Evidence for a State-Point-Dependent Density-Scaling Exponent of Liquid Dynamics.
TLDR
Experimental evidence is presented that the density-scaling exponent γ is state-point dependent for the glass formers tetramethyl-tetraphenyl-trisiloxane and 5-polyphenyl ether and a method is proposed that from dynamic and thermodynamic properties at equilibrium estimates the value of γ.
General rules prospected for the liquid fragility in various material groups and different thermodynamic conditions.
TLDR
The mystery of the dramatic change in molecular dynamics of systems approaching the glass transition can be better understood by the high pressure study of fragility parameters defined in different thermodynamic conditions.
Temperature-Volume Entropic Model for Viscosities and Structural Relaxation Times of Glass Formers.
TLDR
An entropic model recently formulated by Mauro et al. is generalized to describe the temperature-volume dependences of viscosities and structural relaxation times near the glass transition, and the extended model describes well the structural dielectric relaxation times of supercooled van der Waals liquids.
Density-temperature scaling of the fragility in a model glass-former
TLDR
The density dependence of kinetic fragility is found to be weak, and it can be understood in terms of DT scaling and deviations ofDT scaling at low densities, which is consistent with the exponent values obtained by other means.
Density scaling of supercooled simple liquids near the glass transition.

Scaling of viscous dynamics in simple liquids: theory, simulation and experiment
Supercooled liquids are characterized by relaxation times that increase dramatically by cooling or compression. From a single assumption follows a scaling law according to which the relaxation time
Equation of state in the generalized density scaling regime studied from ambient to ultra-high pressure conditions.
TLDR
The one-parameter density function h(ρ) analytically formulated in the case of this prototypical model of supercooled liquid, which implies the one- parameter density function γ(ρ), is able to scale the structural relaxation times with the value of this function parameter determined by fitting the volumetric simulation data to the equations of state.
Universality of Density Scaling
Investigations of the sought after complete and commonly accepted theory of the glass transition and related phenomena have recently gained an essential support from a very promising idea of the
In search of invariants for viscous liquids in the density scaling regime: investigations of dynamic and thermodynamic moduli.
TLDR
An idea to transform the definition of the dynamic modulus Mp-T from the p-T representation to the V-T one, which has resulted in finding an invariant for viscous liquids in the density scaling regime, which is the ratio of thermodynamic and dynamic moduli, BT/MV-T.

The role of temperature and density on the glass-transition dynamics of glass formers.
TLDR
It is shown that monomeric volume and local packing play a key role in controlling the value of this ratio and thus the dynamics associated with the glass temperature.
Supercooled dynamics of glass-forming liquids and polymers under hydrostatic pressure
An intriguing problem in condensed matter physics is understanding the glass transition, in particular the dynamics in the equilibrium liquid close to vitrification. Recent advances have been made by
Disentangling density and temperature effects in the viscous slowing down of glassforming liquids.
TLDR
A zeroth-order description of the approach to the glass transition should be formulated in terms of a temperature-driven super-Arrhenius activated behavior rather than a density-driven congestion or jamming phenomenon.

TLDR
It is shown that a generalized scaling, log (tau) proportional, variant T-1 V-gamma, where gamma is a material constant, yields superpositioning for ten glass formers, encompassing van der Waals molecules, associated liquids, and polymers.

TLDR
For van der Waals molecular liquids, the dynamics near T(g) are in fact governed as much by density as by temperature, and relaxation times measured at various temperatures and pressures can be superimposed by plotting as a function rho(gamma)/T.
