Christian Kuttner opened a general discussion of the paper by Pete Vukusic: You have pointed out the differences between ordered, quasi-ordered and disordered systems. But how does this relate to the short- and long-range order? For example, some densely packed arrangements may have very uniform distances to the nearest neighbour, but poor order at longer distances. Would you consider a random close-packed structure as quasi-ordered or disordered (chaotic)?
