As liquids are cooled towards their glass transitions, their viscosities increase dramatically. This now widely accepted to be a co-operative phenomenon, accompanied strong spatial correlations between the motion in the liquid. I will define novel ensembles and use these to connect the co-operative behaviour in the liquid to an underlying phase transition that occurs in space-time. The methods will be illustrated by simulations of atomistic model liquids and analysis of simple models based on Ising spins.
