We calculate analytically the fluctuation-dissipation ratio (FDR) for Ising ferromagnets quenched to criticality, both for the long-range model and its short-range analog in the limit of large dimension. Our exact solution shows that, for both models, if the system is unmagnetized while if the initial magnetization is nonzero. This indicates that two(More)
We introduce an exactly solvable model for glassy dynamics with many relaxational modes, each one characterized by a different relaxational time scale. Analytical solution of the aging dynamics at low temperatures shows that a nonequilibrium or effective temperature can be associated to each time scale or mode. The spectrum of effective temperatures shows(More)
We analyze fluctuation-dissipation relations in the backgammon model: a system that displays glassy behavior at zero temperature due to the existence of entropy barriers. We study local and global fluctuation relations for the different observables in the model. For the case of a global perturbation we find a unique negative fluctuation-dissipation ratio(More)
Zero-th law in structural glasses: an example 2 Abstract. We investigate the validity of a zeroth thermodynamic law for non-equilibrium systems. In order to describe the thermodynamics of the glassy systems, it has been introduced an extra parameter, the effective temperature which generalizes the fluctuation-dissipation theorem (FDT) to off-equilibrium(More)
Due to high computational costs, the physics governed by the wave equation in 3-D is often modelled via discrete-time numerical simulations conducted in 2-D scenarios. Results are normally generalized to 3-D rather straightforwardly, overlooking the fact that the propagation of a point-like impulse in 2-D exhibits the so-called afterglow phenomenon, which(More)
