Perspective: Searching for simplicity rather than universality in glass-forming liquids

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


This article gives an overview of experimental results on dynamics in bulk glass-forming molecular liquids. Rather than looking for phenomenology that is universal, in the sense that it is seen in all liquids, the focus is on identifying the basic characteristics, or “stylized facts,” of the glass transition problem, i.e., the central observations that a theory of the physics of glass formation should aim to explain in a unified manner.
