Relaxation theories of the glass transition and viscous flow of glass-forming melts are presented. The main attention is devoted to modern representations of the glass transition equation qτg = δTg determining the appearance of a glassy state during cooling. Here, q=d T/dt is the temperature change rate during melt cooling and τg is the relaxation time at the glass transition temperature Tg. Various methods for calculating the characteristic temperature band δ Tg during the liquid—glass transition are considered. The generalized equation for the dependence of Tg on the melt cooling rate is derived. Based on the model of delocalized atoms, the modified kinetic glass transition criterion is discussed. The generalized viscosity equation for glass-forming liquids is derived.
