Mode coupling theories for jamming and gelation

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

The mode coupling theory (MCT) for the glass transition is in reasonable accord with observations on attractive colloids at high densities. This paper presents a brief review of the MCT. This is followed by a more detailed discussion of two recent extensions of it. These address (i) nonlinear rheology and jamming in colloids under shear and (ii) weak gelation of colloids at low densities.
