Most glass-forming systems are composed of basic units interacting with each other with a nontrivial anharmonic potential. Naturally, relaxation and diffusion in glass formers is a many-body problem. Results from recent experimental studies are presented to show the effects of many-body relaxation and diffusion manifested on the dynamic properties of glass formers. Considering that the effects are general and critical, the problem of glass transition will not be solved until the many-body nature of the relaxation process has been incorporated fundamentally into any theory.
