The out-of-equilibrium behavior of the frustrated lattice gas, a model of structural glasses, is
described, showing many of the essential features of glass phenomenology. The relation with
well-known spin glass models may help in understanding many controversial issues related with
the liquid­glass transition and glassy dynamics of many physical systems. c 2000 Elsevier

Many theoretical aspects of the structural glass transition and the nature of the glassy
phase (see e.g. the articles in Ref. [1]) are still poorly understood and as the involved
physics gets more and more complex, the lack of a tractable microscopic model is
felt. Little, analytical progress has been made with popular models based on Lennard­
