Recent advances in glass physics and the glass science landscape in India

Computational and theoretical investigations of the properties of glass formers and glasses have witnessed significant advances in recent years, leading to new insights regarding the glass transition and the properties of glasses, specifically their mechanical and yielding behavior. Improved methodologies have been developed for modeling and simulating these phenomena. Some of these developments will be reviewed. In addition, a broad perspective of the glass science and technology landscape in India will also be presented.
