On the definition of an ideal amorphous solid of uniform hard spheres
Perfection of structure is defined firstly by the definition of imperfections that may occur in that structure, and secondly by the strict requirement of absence of those imperfections. An ideal amorphous solid is a geometrical structure with perfectly random (as distinct from disordered) packing of spheres/atoms. This is achieved by requiring all spheres to be in fixed positions (no rattlers) and the packing to obey certain statistical rules (without exceptions). The random configurations of...[Show more]
