Statistics of Two-Dimensional Amorphous Lattice and Some Applications
As is well known, topologically disordered condensed matter such as liquids and amorphous solids has the following structural characteristics. In the first place, crystalline long-range order is absent in spite of the fact that its density is rather high close to the corresponding crystal density. In the second place, it retains a short-range order which is quite similar to that of the crystal. In this sense, we may say that randomness and regularity coexist in the amorphous system. It takes an intermediate position between the gas (completely random) and the crystal (completely regular).
