#362 - Supercooled Liquids and Glasses (01A07)
Supercooled liquids and glasses are interesting and complex forms of matter that possess unusual thermodynamic and transport properties. Glasses generally exhibit disordered, but not necessarily liquid-like, structure at the molecular level; however, they display solid-like relaxation dynamics and elastic responses. Supercooled liquids, especially network-formers such as water, exhibit anomalous thermodynamic properties and highly cooperative, non-Arrhenius relaxation dynamics. We welcome papers that address the fundamental understanding and/or practical application of these systems, from either an experimental, theoretical, or computational viewpoint.
