Anomalous dynamics of disordered materials

Zihua Liu

Research output: ThesisDoctoral thesis 1 (Research UU / Graduation UU)


The mystery of the universe stems from the inherent disorder on its spatial scale and its constant evolution, which is manifested in the study of the dynamics of disordered systems and materials. In this chapter, we introduce the basic concepts of disordered materials and anomalous dynamics, the two central to the theme of this thesis. An outline of this paper is also presented.
