At finite rates of supercooling, many liquids fall out of equilibrium and into an amorphous solid phase. This lecture describes and illustrates the nature of dynamics in the two phases and the dynamical transition that connects them. Recent papers on the approach to this topic taken in this lecture:

Keys et al, “Excitations are localized and relaxation is hierarchical in glass-forming liquids” arXiv:1107.3628

Jack et al, “Preparation and relaxation of very stable glassy states of a simulated liquid” arXiv:1109.2715

Speck & Chandler, “Constrained dynamics of localized excitations causes a non-equilibrium phase transition in an atomistic model of glass formers” arXiv:1110.4546.
