Glass Doesn't Flow and Doesn't Crystallize and It Isn't a Liquid.
Hawkes, Stephen J.
Journal of Chemical Education, v77 n7 p846-48 Jul 2000
Illustrates that, contrary to some assertions made in the popular press, scientific literature, and introductory textbooks, glass does not flow in historic time. Contends that glass is a rigid solid with a lower degree of molecular order than a crystal but with greater molecular order than a liquid. (Contains 27 references.) (WRM)
