Abstract: We study a recently introduced model of one-component glass-forming liquidswhose constituents interact with anisotropic potential. This system isinteresting per-se and as a model of liquids like glycerol (interacting viahydrogen bonds) which are excellent glass formers. We work out the statisticalmechanics of this system, encoding the liquid and glass disorder usingappropriate quasi-particles (36 of them). The theory provides a fullexplanation of the glass transition phenomenology, including the identificationof a diverging length scale and a relation between the structural changes andthe diverging relaxation times.
