ABSTRACT | Confirming by experiments or simulations whether or not an ideal glass transition really exists
is a daunting task, because at this point the equilibration time becomes astronomically large.
Recently it has been proposed that this difficulty can be bypassed by pinning a fraction of the
particles in the glass-forming system. Here we study numerically a liquid with such random
pinned particles and identify the ideal glass transition point TK at which the configurational
entropy vanishes, thus realizing for the first time, to our knowledge, a glass with zero entropy.
