Rigidity of thermalized soft repulsive spheres around the jamming point    [PDF]

Satoshi Okamura, Hajime Yoshino
We study the effect of thermalization on the rigidity of a randomly packed soft repulsive sphere system around the jamming point by analyzing the shear-modulus using the cloned liquid theory with the 1 step replica symmetry breaking ansatz and molecular dynamics simulations. Contrarily to the usual harmonic picture for solids, we found that the thermalized jamming system is anomalously softer than at zero temperature such that the shear-modulus becomes as small as the pressure down to vanishingly low temperatures.
