Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

45 Scopus citations


Key advances in the area of the glass transition include various experimental detections of the onset of microscopic inhomogeneity near Tg, and the calorimetric characterization of a β-glass transition well below Tg. Theoretical advances include development of master equation approaches, alternative formulations of the mode coupling equations, and microheterogeneity-based interpretations of the origin of strong and fragile liquid characteristics.
