  1. Y. Jin, P. Charbonneau, Mapping the arrest of the random Lorentz gas to the dynamical transition of simple glass formers (2014) [0688] .

    The random Lorentz gas is a minimal model for transport in heterogeneous media. Here, we map its dynamical arrest at high obstacle density onto the dynamical transition of the Mari-Kurchan model glass former. The association provides quasi-rigorous bounds for void percolation, which together with numerical results in d=2-6 suggests an equivalence between the two transitions in the limit of high spatial dimension. This conjecture provides physical insights into the systematic difficulties that mode-coupling theory encounters in predicting the onset of both types of dynamical arrest.
