Key advances in the area of the glass transition include various experimental detections of the onset of microscopic inhomogeneity near Tg, and the calorimetric characterization of a β-glass transition well below Tg. Theoretical advances include development of master equation approaches, alternative formulations of the mode coupling equations, and microheterogeneity-based interpretations of the origin of strong and fragile liquid characteristics.
