Abstract

O’Hern, Silbert, Liu, and Nagel [Phys. Rev. E. 68, 011306 (2003)] claim that a special point [Formula presented] of a “jamming phase diagram” (in density, temperature, stress space) is related to random close packing of hard spheres and that it represents, for their suggested definitions of jammed and random, the recently introduced maximally random jammed state. We point out several difficulties with their definitions and question some of their claims. Furthermore, we discuss the connections between their algorithm and other hard-sphere packing algorithms in the literature.
