abstract

  • The study of metallic glasses which exhibit magnetic interactions was mainly restricted to the amorphous solid regime and its properties. Here we study the glass transition in fluids where particles are endowed with spins, such that magnetic and positional degrees of freedom are coupled. Results for slowing down in the spin time-correlation functions are described, and the effects of magnetic fields on the glass transition are studied. Aging effects in such systems and the corresponding data collapse are presented and discussed.
