Un nouvel ouvrage co-écrit par Pierfrancesco Urbani, physicien à l’IPhT   
Le nouvel ouvrage Theory of simple glasses, co-écrit par Giorgio Parisi, Pierfrancesco Urbani , physicien à l’IPhT, et Francesco Zamponi, vient de paraître chez Cambridge University Press. Félicitations Pierfrancesco !



This pedagogical and self-contained text describes the modern mean field theory of simple structural glasses. The book begins with a thorough explanation of infinite-dimensional models in statistical physics, before reviewing the key elements of the thermodynamic theory of liquids and the dynamical properties of liquids and glasses. The central feature of the mean field theory of disordered systems, the existence of a large multiplicity of metastable states, is then introduced. The replica method is then covered, before the final chapters describe important, advanced topics such as Gardner transitions, complexity, packing spheres in large dimensions, the jamming transition, and the rheology of glass. Presenting the theory in a clear and pedagogical style, this is an excellent resource for researchers and graduate students working in condensed matter physics and statistical mechanics…
