Self induced quenched disorder: a model for the glass transition

J. P. Bouchaud, M. Mézard
1994 Journal de Physique I  
We consider a simple spin system without disorder which exhibits a glassy regime. We show that this model can be well approximated by a system with quenched disorder which is studied with the standard methods developped in spin glasses. We propose that the glass transition is a point where quenched disorder is self induced, a scenario for which the 'cavity' method might be particularly well suited.
