Holographic glasses

Multicentered black hole bound states have been known to exist in flat space. We show that they can also exist in spacetimes with AdS_4 asymptotics. We map out the thermodynamic stability of these black holes in a probe approximation and study their dynamics. We use this to argue that these multicentered black holes are dual to structural glass states of the dual CFT.
