Confinement, Coarsening And Nonequilibrium Fluctuations In Glassy And Yielding Systems
One of the most important and interesting unsolved problems of science is the nature of glassy dynamics and the glass transition. It is quite an old problem, and starting from the early20th century there have been many ...
Dynamics of Glass-Forming Liquids and Shear-Induced Grain Growth in Dense Colloidal Suspensions
The work presented in this doctoral thesis employs colloidal suspensions to explore key open problems in condensed matter physics. Colloidal suspensions, along with gels, polymers, emulsions and liquid crystals belong to ...
Numerical Studies Of Slow Dynamics And Glass Transition In Model Liquids
An increase in the co-operativity in the motion of particles and a growth of a suitably defined dynamical correlation length seem to be generic features exhibited by all liquids upon supercooling. These features have been ...
