Abstract

A computer simulation study of the temperature dependence of the specific heat obtained upon heating different glass configurations across glass-to-liquid transition for water was discussed. The glassy configurations were generated with different cooling rates and the temperature dependence of the specific heat on heating was calculated. It was observed that the absence of crystallization phenomena allowed to detect the simultaneous presence of a weak prepeak in the specific heat. The results show that the glass transition temperature was higher than the conventionally accepted value 136K.
