1212.0390 (Francesco Zamponi)

Theory of simple glasses    [PDF]

Francesco Zamponi
This manuscript has been prepared as a thesis to obtain the French "Habilitation \`a diriger des recherches (HDR)" which allows one to supervise PhD students. I review here my work on the glass and jamming transition. I tried to explain this subject in a concise and self-contained way, highlighting what I consider the main motivations for its study and trying to put my work in a broader perspective. Basically I tried to tell this story in the same way as I would tell it to a student who contacted me to start a PhD thesis on these topics.
