Abstract

We show that Johari's critique of our work is based on a misunderstanding of ergodic theory and a disregard for the broken ergodic nature of glass. His analysis is in contradiction with well established experimental results in specific heat spectroscopy, shear-mechanical spectroscopy, and the vanishing of heat capacity in the limit of zero temperature. Based on these misinterpretations, Johari arrives at the erroneous conclusion that the residual entropy of glass is real. However, we show that Johari's result is an artifact in direct contradiction with both rigorous theory and experimental measurements.
