Does a Growing Static Length Scale Control the Glass Transition?

Matthieu Wyart & Michael Cates
Several theories of the glass transition propose that the structural relaxation time is controlled by a growing static length scale that is determined by the free energy landscape but not by the local dynamical rules governing its exploration. We argue, based on recent simulations using particle-radius-swap dynamics, that only a modest factor in the increase in relaxation time on approach to the glass transition may stem from the growth of a static length, with a...
