  • A unified theory is developed for describing dynamic and static properties of strongly correlated charged-particle systems, such as a high-density electron liquid and a strongly turbulent plasma, for which the correlation (or fluctuation) energy is comparable in magnitude to the kinetic energy. Based on the microscopic Klimontovich formalism, a systematic renormalization of the single-particle propagators is carried out and vertex corrections arising from strong correlations are taken account of. The resulting theory is examined, and found to be satisfactory, in the light of a number of rigorous criteria, such as explicit inclusion of statistical modification effects in the single-particle orbits,more » dynamic modification of effective particle interactions brought about by strong correlations, frequency-moment sum rules of the dielectric response function, and reproduction of exact results known in the static properties of the electron liquid; the theory is thus valid for all wave numbers and frequencies. With the aid of a velocity-average approximation, we show that the result can be expressed in a simplified form which still satisfies those criteria. Its relation with the polarization potential model in the theory of condensed matter is thereby noted; explicit expressions for the scalar and vector polarization potentials, the wave-number-dependent effective mass, and the collisional contribution to the response function are obtained.

  • Using molecular dynamics simulations, we show clear evidence for the nonlocal mesoscopic nature of the anomalous viscous transport in a supercooled liquid and its direct link to dynamic heterogeneity: (i) a distinct crossover from the microscopic to macroscopic viscosity at a mesoscopic length scale, which is comparable to the correlation length of dynamic heterogeneity and grows with an increase in the degree of supercooling; (ii) a strong anisotropic decay of the shear-stress autocorrelation at a finite wave number, which indicates intrinsic decoupling between the longitudinal and transverse dynamics. Our findings suggest the fundamental importance of the growing dynamic correlation inmore » anomalous transport and shed new light on the nature of slow dynamics.« less
