Glassy materials are those in which the diffusive motion of atoms and molecules becomes very slow, when the temperature is reduced. There a range of simple physical models that aim to reproduce and explain the phenomena that occur in such materials. We analyse dynamical fluctuations in some of these models using large deviation theory. This reveals several dynamical phase transitions. We analyse some properties of these phase transitions and discuss their implications for theories of the glass transition.
