Abstract

We numerically obtain a quantitative demonstration that development of spatial correlations of mobility as temperature is lowered is responsible for the "decoupling" of transport properties of supercooled liquids. This result further demonstrates the necessity of a spatial description of the glass formation and therefore seriously challenges a number of popular alternative theoretical descriptions.
