Self-organization in glass: the synergetic chemical bonding approach



  1. Ostrovityanova Str. 19-98, Moscow, 117437, Russi


With the use of synergetics, a theory of self-organization of the dissipative type, an original approach for understanding of glass nature and glass structure is presented. The chemical bonding instability and its collective character provide a new type of organization of non-crystalline network, which can be described as the bond wave that spreads through the sample in a direction given by information field. The bond wave model in used for explanation of both the known glass features (glass transition, first sharp diffraction peak, etc.) and the original experiments (magneto-viscous resonance, ultrasonic teatments, etc.). The synergetic approach does not contradict with the well-spread topological/network approach after Thorpe-Phillips-Boolchand, one reflects the dynamic (wave) and another reflects the static (network) sides of glass reality..
