Arrest your complainings and list ye to mine,
And you who can sorrow for every toy,
Hear a mother's lament for her poor idiot boy.

Where tasteless Apathy's empoison'd wand
Arrests the vagrant sense with numbing pow'r,
While vanquish'd REASON bows at her command.

Gaze on the dancing, stamping, whistling crowd,
Watching the villager,--young, happy, festive--

So fair to see, so sweet to bless,

Arrested by her loveliness,
Then I thought some hand would set,
On that brow a coronet.

And sadly his fate he does bewail;
And he curses the hour that ever was born,
And paces his cell up and down very forlorn.

In science:

In general, magnetic field may enhance or reduce the kinetic arrest, depending on whether the low temperature equilibrium state has lower or higher value of magnetization23,24 .
Magnetic glass in Shape Memory Alloy : Ni45Co5Mn38Sn12
It has been noted that by cooling in a certain field (Hc ) and then heating in a different field (Hw ), this glass like arrested state (GLAS) can be de-arrested and on further heating a reverse magnetic transition is observed.
Magnetic glass in Shape Memory Alloy : Ni45Co5Mn38Sn12
These results are consistent with what is expected in a magnetic glass; however the well established CHUF protocol provides a crucial test for validating whether the kinetically arrested state corresponds to a magnetic glass.
Magnetic glass in Shape Memory Alloy : Ni45Co5Mn38Sn12
We justify this by constructing the qualitative phase diagram identifying bands of supercooling (SC), superheating (SH) and kinetic arrest (KA) from the variety of measurements spanning the HT space and check its self consistency.
Magnetic glass in Shape Memory Alloy : Ni45Co5Mn38Sn12
As has been discussed in detail in reference the SC limit T*(H), the SH limit T**(H) and the kinetic arrest line TK (H) are broadened into bands in system with quenched disorder.
Magnetic glass in Shape Memory Alloy : Ni45Co5Mn38Sn12
At higher fields the MT gets gradually inhibited and completely arrested at 9T, as shown in figures 1(b-d).
Magnetic glass in Shape Memory Alloy : Ni45Co5Mn38Sn12
These ‘kinetically arrested states’ are due to slowing down of growth of the martensite phase from the supercooled austenite phase, similar to the viscous retardation in structural glasses.
Magnetic glass in Shape Memory Alloy : Ni45Co5Mn38Sn12
While in a jamming process translational kinetics is arrested; in the formation of both these glasses the specific heat is extracted, while the latent heat (which has a different coupling with thermal conduction process) can not be extracted1 .
Magnetic glass in Shape Memory Alloy : Ni45Co5Mn38Sn12
As the first order MT gets arrested in presence of field, the low temperature states turn out to be non-ergodic.
Magnetic glass in Shape Memory Alloy : Ni45Co5Mn38Sn12
The TMI at low temperatures could be due to spin glass behavior, pinning of variants, hindrance of domain motion or glass like arrest of dynamics.
Magnetic glass in Shape Memory Alloy : Ni45Co5Mn38Sn12
This phase diagram gives the quantitative information about the phase fraction kinetically arrested across the HkTk band on cooling and/or applying the field as well as about the de-arrested fraction on warming and/or reducing the field.

This critical arrested part f c q has the meaning of a plateau for the fq (t )-versus-log t curves for states near the transition.
The Cole-Cole Law for Critical Dynamics in Glass-Forming Liquids
Hence, for ˆKq < 0, it is expected that the Cole-Cole law is a good description of the critical dynamics. A detailed discussion of the MCT equations has shown that a large arrested part f c q implies a large negative correction amplitude ˆKq for the critical decay .
