Session 7: Mean-Field and Low-Dimensional Theories of Glasses

This session will focus on recent theoretical and computational advances to understand the glass transition and glassy rheology in structural glasses, using high-dimensional and mean field models and connecting them to results in two and three dimensions. Specific topics include: Theoretical predictions for glasses and jammed solids in infinite dimensions; jamming, packing, and glass transitions in four and higher dimensions; new computational models for accessing glass transition (including swap Monte Carlo); computational methods for analyzing vibrational spectrum in 2- and 3-D; and methods for identifying low-energy excitations and two-level systems in structural glasses
