We present a new formulation of the jamming phase diagram for a class of glass-forming fluids consisting of spheres interacting via finite-ranged repulsions at temperature T, packing fraction ϕ or pressure p, and applied shear stress Σ. We argue that the natural choice of axes for the phase diagram are the dimensionless quantities T/pσ³, pσ³/ε, and Σ/p, where T is the temperature, p is the pressure, Σ is the stress, σ is the sphere diameter, ε is the interaction energy scale, and m is the… 
Dynamic correlations and confinement effects in glass forming hard sphere systems
The results discussed here deal with the equilibrium as well as the nonequilibrium properties of glass forming liquids. An example of equilibrium phenomena is the effect of strong confinement on the
The Packing Landscapes of Quasi-One Dimensional Hard Sphere Systems
Packing Landscapes of Constrained Hard Sphere Fluids By Mahdi Zaeifi Yamchi When a liquid is cooled below its equilibrium freezing temperature, it becomes supercooled and the molecular motions slow
Ergodicity breaking transition in a glassy soft sphere system at small but non-zero temperatures
This work introduces a new method that includes the possibility of the thermally excited crossing of energy barriers that makes the transition from an ergodic to an effectively non-ergodic systems easily accessible and helps to reveal its universality class.
Consequences of minimising pair correlations in fluids for dynamics, thermodynamics and structure
ABSTRACT Liquid-state theory, computer simulation and numerical optimisation are used to investigate the extent to which positional correlations of a hard-sphere fluid – as characterised by the
The thermal jamming transition of soft harmonic disks in two dimensions
The thermal jamming transition is in the universality class of directed percolation and therefore is fundamentally different from the athermal jamming Transition.
Defects and Rearrangements in Disordered Solids
In this thesis, I will investigate the properties of disordered materials under strain. Disordered materials encompass a large variety of materials, including glasses, polymers, granular matter,
A small subset of normal modes mimics the properties of dynamical heterogeneity in a model supercooled liquid.
This work demonstrates that the nature of transitions between inherent structures of a two-dimensional model supercooled liquid occur predominately along a small number of directions on the energy landscape, and shows that the number of such directions decreases as the temperature of the liquid is decreased in the mildlysupercooled regime.
Suspension rheology and extrusion : a discrete element method study
A suspension is a fully saturated mixture of discrete solid particles and interstitial liquid. Examples of suspensions include pastes, slurries, cement, food-spreads, drilling fluids and some

The results show that random organization and jamming are opposite limits of random sphere packings, and it is expected that various equilibrium and nonequilibrium transitions can be formulated as related intermediate packing problems.
Anisotropy and memory during cage breaking events close to a wall.
It is shown that the microscopic dynamics of particles close to a wall can be related to the anisotropic two-particle density and revealed the memory effect of cages, which leads to a deeper insight into the fundamental mechanisms of glassy dynamics.

I am writing with a simple plea to balance the voluminous articles about treatment in your journal with a modicum of information about nature and caring effects to rekindle the perception of physicians as healers, not only treaters, who relish the gifts of nature, and foster the humanistic aspect of medicine that has thrived for millennia.
