Undoing the Complexity of the Glass-Transition

Itamar Procaccia, The Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel

In this talk I will shortly review what is believed to be known regarding the long-standing open problem of the glass- transition, and will proceed to argue that much of what is accepted is not true. On the other hand I will argue that with a careful analysis of the physics that is taking place, a lot of the mystery of the glass-transition can be dispelled.
