Abstract:We present a detailed analysis of the -relaxation dynamics of a simple glass former, a binary Lennard-Jones system with a stochastic dynamics. By testing the various predictions of mode-coupling theory, including the recently proposed corrections to the asymptotic scaling laws, we come to the conclusion that in this time regime the dynamics is described very well by this theory.

Temperature dependence of secondary relaxation in a supercooled liquid
The dynamics of Lennard–Jones fluid is studied through extended mode coupling theory (MCT) with the inclusion of the slow mode of defect density. Inclusion of defect density facilitates the liquid

TLDR
The average dynamical behavior of the system is in quantitative agreement with results obtained from molecular dynamics simulations, at least in the long-time regime corresponding to the alpha -relaxation, and the emergence of dynamic heterogeneity is discussed.

TLDR
Predictions of the mode-coupling theory (MCT) are tested with extensive Brownian dynamics simulations and Qualitative features of the nonergodicity parameters and the β relaxation, which both depend in a nontrivial way on the mixing ratio, are found in the simulated correlators.
Glassy dynamics of a binary Voronoi fluid: A mode-coupling analysis.
TLDR
The agreement between MCT and simulation suggests that it is possible to predict several microscopic dynamic properties with qualitative, and in some cases near-quantitative, accuracy based solely on static two-point structural correlations, even though the system itself is inherently governed by many-body interactions.
Structural relaxation of polydisperse hard spheres: comparison of the mode-coupling theory to a Langevin dynamics simulation.
TLDR
Analyzing the slow glassy structural relaxation as measured through collective and tagged-particle density correlation functions obtained from Brownian dynamics simulations for a polydisperse system of quasi-hard spheres reveals large quantitative errors for small wave numbers that are connected to the well-known decoupling of self-diffusion from structural relaxation and to dynamical heterogeneities.
Short time dynamics determine glass forming ability in a glass transition two-level model: A stochastic approach using Kramers' escape formula
The relationship between short and long time relaxation dynamics is obtained for a simple solvable two-level energy landscape model of a glass. This is done through means of the Kramers’ transition
Glassy behaviour in a simple topological model
In this paper we study a simple, purely topological, cellular model which is allowed to evolve through a Glauber-Kawasaki process. We find a non-thermodynamic transition to a glassy phase in which
The Johari-Goldstein process of a model diatomic molecular system in the supercooled state
Combining the intermediate scattering function of the center of mass and that of individual atoms obtained by molecular dynamics simulation, we devise a method of analyzing the contribution of the
Glassy dynamics in thin polymer films: recent MD results
The influence of a film geometry on the glass transition is investigated via molecular dynamics (MD) simulations of a (non-entangled) polymer melt. The confinement is realized by two identical
Stretched and compressed exponentials in the relaxation dynamics of a metallic glass-forming melt
TLDR
Computer simulations of a metallic glass-former are used to show the coexistence of stretched and compressed relaxation in a metallicGlass system and attribute their origins to different local cluster structures.
