Glasses and Local Packings

Aste, Tomaso; Coniglio, Antonio


A cell theory for glassforming liquids, amorphous solids and granular packings was developed by combining geometrical properties of local packings. Its application to hard spheres gives results in very good agreement with molecular dynamics data. The theory reproduces well the Voghel-Fulcher-Tamman law, the Adam-Gibbs relations and the Kauzmann's behavior for the configurational entropy.
