The thermodynamics and cooperative dynamics of heterophase liquid states is considered taking into account frustration and volumetric interaction of the solid-like fluctuons. It is found that the glass transition temperature range is scaled by difference of the frustration parameter and mean energy of the volumetric interaction. A model of the cooperative relaxation with finite cooperatively rearranging domains is considered. The fictitious Kauzmann and Vogel-Fulcher temperatures are determined. It is found that they are close to a proper accuracy. Correlation of the temperatures of glass transition, Vogel-Fulcher and "ideal" glass transition (as it is determined in the mode coupling model) is considered too.

Key words: heterophase liquid states, glass transition, Kauzmann and Vogel-Fulcher temperatures
