报告摘要:

That fivefold symmetry should play a crucial role in the non-equilibrium behaviour of condensed matter was proposed in the 1950s. Six decades later, the basic mechanism of the solidification of liquids remains unexplained, either in the case that the material crystallises, or that it forms an amorphous solid, a glass. We will explore the implications of fivefold symmetry in the solidification of liquids and discuss two recent developments.
