Title: An informal introduction to the glass transition and glasses physics

Abstract:  Although the glass is a well-known material and used since ancient, even today the nature of the glassy state and its physical properties remain a cause of discussion in the scientific community. In fact, when several prominent scientists analyzed the main challenges that should be addressed in the XXI century, it was stated that "The most profound and interesting problem of solid state physics no yet resolved is probably the theory of the nature of the glass and the glass transition".

In this talk, will be presented an informal introduction to the physics of glasses, showing that is the glass transition and what are their main problems.
