Jamming below upper critical dimension

11 Jul 2020  ·  Ikeda Harukuni ·

Extensive numerical simulations in the past decades proved that the critical exponents of the jamming of frictionless spherical particles remain unchanged in two and three dimensions. This implies that the upper critical dimension is $d_u=2$ or lower... In this work, we study the jamming transition below the upper critical dimension. We investigate a quasi-one-dimensional system: disks confined in a narrow channel. We show that the system is isostatic at the jamming transition point as in the case of standard jamming transition of the bulk systems in two and three dimensions. Nevertheless, the scaling of the excess contact number shows the linear scaling. Furthermore, the gap distribution remains finite even at the jamming transition point. These results are qualitatively different from those of the bulk systems in two and three dimensions. read more
