The study of surface tension within the random first-order theory of glass transition

The behavior of surface tension within the random first-order theory (RFOT) of glass transition is studied in a glass-forming liquid model by means of ad-hoc numerical methods. The spinodal point for RFOT excitations turns out to be well defined as a function of the energy of inherent structures (...
