DescriptionGlass problem is one of the outstanding unsolved problems in condensed matter physics. The exact solution of a model glass former in the limit of infinite spatial dimension exhibit a dynamical critical point. It is important to check the robustness of the resulting description under changing d for fundamental understanding. In this project we aim to take a closer look at this dynamical criticality as a function of spatial dimensions, using models of polydisperse hard sphere fluids. Computer simulation is an essential tool to pursue this study.
