One of the most important aspects of solid materials is the regularity of the arrangement of the constituent molecules, that is, the long-range order. The focus of this book is on the contribution made by the ordering of bond orientations (as distinguished from the orientations of the molecules themselves) on the behavior of condensed systems, particularly their phase transitions. Examples in which bond-orientational effects play an important role are liquid crystals, quasicrystals, and two-dimensional crystals. This book contains contributions by many of the foremost researchers in the field. The chapters are tutorial reviews of the subject, written both for the active researcher looking for a review of a topic and for the graduate student investigating an exciting area of research. The contributions include an overview by J.D. Brock, Cornell; a discussion of computer simulation studies by K.J. Strandburg, Argonne; chapters on phase transition in hexatic liquid crystals by C.C. Huang, Minnesota and C.A. Murray, Texas A & M; and chapters on quasicrystals by S. Sachdev, Yale, M.V. Jaric, A.I. Goldman, Iowa State, and T.-L. Ho, Ohio State.

A rather canonical example along the line of Massimo would be just the lowest order [in e^2/(hc)] correction to photon's self-energy in QED. At the first order electrons could be thought of as 'dust' and photon as the 'horse'. If someone insists on giving a condensed matter example one can replace photons by phonons. PM. Get Books Form Symmetries and Reduction of Order in Difference Equations presents a new approach to the formulation and analysis of difference equations in which the underlying space is typically an algebraic group. In some problems and applications, an additional algebraic or topological structure is assumed in order to define equations and.

Abstract: There are at least three fundamental states of matter, depending upon temperature and pressure: gas, liquid, and solid (crystal).Cited by: Bond-orientational order in molecular-dynamics simulations of supercooled liquids and in models of metallic glasses is studied.

Quadratic and third-order invariants formed from bond spherical harmonics allow quantitative measures of cluster symmetries in these systems. at least in these model glass-forming systems there is growing structural order (e.g., bond orientational order), which has a link to dynamic heterogeneity in a supercooled liquid state.

We also note that similar crystal-like order was also observed in a supercooled state of 2D magnetic colloids both experimentally and numerically [19]. For weakly disordered systems, slow regions are characterized by high bond orientational order, which has a link to the bond orientational order of the equilibrium crystal structure.

For strongly disordered systems, a local version of the structural entropy defined by the two-point density correlation, s 2 (r), turns out to be a good static Cited by: Bond-Orientational Order in Condensed Matter Systems.
