Session 4: Topological Constraint Theory of Glass

Topological engineering and molecular rigidity concepts have enabled many breakthroughs in our understanding of glasses and amorphous solids. This session will focus on recent advances in topological modeling and cover experimental, computational, and theoretical studies. The topics of interest include, but are not restricted to: Atomic topology of glasses, self-organization, intermediate phase; effect of temperature, pressure, or irradiation of atomic topology; topological modeling applied to the prediction of glasses’ properties; advances in computational approaches applied to rigidity and topology; and topological constraint theory beyond glasses (granular materials, gels, disordered solids, phase-change materials, proteins, etc.).
