Dynamic and Static Properties of

the Randomly Pinned Planar Flux Array

G. George Batrouni and Terence Hwa


        We report the results of large scale numerical studies of the dynamic and static properties of the random phase model of the randomly pinned flux lines confined in a plane. From the onset of nonlinear IV characteristics, we identify a vortex glass transition at the theoretically anticipated temperature. However, the vortex glass phase itself is much less glassy than expected. No signature of the glass transition has been detected in the static quantities measured.
