Title:  Soft excitations in glasses: Universality, localization and structural relaxation

Abstract:
Glasses are frustrated systems characterized by structural disorder, which endows them with unique properties compared to their crystalline counterparts. In this talk, we show that glassy disorder gives rise to low-frequency (soft) non-phononic excitations, which are quasi-localized in space and which follow a universal density of states proportional to
