Fluctuation Effects in the Adam-Gibbs Model of Cooperative Relaxation.

Summary of "Fluctuation Effects in the Adam-Gibbs Model of Cooperative Relaxation."

A generalization of the Adam-Gibbs model of relaxation in glass-forming liquids is formulated that takes into account fluctuation in the number of molecules inside the cooperative region. The configurational fraction links the excess entropy with kinetic properties described in the Adam-Gibbs model. We express the configurational fraction at the glass-transition temperature in terms of the width of the distribution of relaxation times, the nonlinearity parameter that demarcates the variations of the relaxation time with structure and temperature, the steepness index that is proportional to the slope of the logarithm of the relaxation time with respect to temperature, the excess heat capacity under constant pressure, and the number of correlated molecules or structural units. The configurational fraction in the absence of fluctuation effects is also determined for several glass-forming liquids at the glass-transition temperature.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A subfamily of ADAM proteases that are distinguished by the presence of one or more THROMBOSPONDIN type-1 repeats (TSRs). These are three-strand motifs that contain characteristic TRYPTOPHAN, ARGININE, and CYSTEINE residues respectively. In contrast to ADAM proteins, which reside on CELL MEMBRANES, ADAMTS proteases are secreted and function in the EXTRACELLULAR MATRIX.

Statistical formulations or analyses which, when applied to data and found to fit the data, are then used to verify the assumptions and parameters used in the analysis. Examples of statistical models are the linear model, binomial model, polynomial model, two-parameter model, etc.
