Online Seminar: Kinetically constrained models: universality results
Kinetically constrained models were originally introduced in the 80's based on free volume theories of the glass transition and later used as a paradigm model for the dynamical facilitation scenario. More recently, a renewed interest comes from the study of their quantum version, in connection with the issue of many body localization.
In this seminar I will discuss some recent rigorous results on the critical time scales of KCM when the temperature goes to zero, as well as the connection with the critical behavior of the corresponding deterministic bootstrap percolation cellular automata. In particular, I will provide the full picture of the universality classes for KCM in two dimensions.
This is a weekly series of webinars on theoretical aspects of Condensed Matter, Biological, and Statistical Physics. It is open to anyone interested in research in these areas..
