The low temperature Monte Carlo dynamics of an ensemble of linear harmonic oscillators shows some entropic barriers related to the difficulty of finding the directions in configurational space which decrease the energy. This mechanism is enough to observe some typical non-equilibrium features of glassy systems like activated-type behavior and aging in the correlation function and in the response function. Due to the absence of interactions the model only displays a one-step relaxation process. 
The zeroth law in structural glasses: an example
We investigate the validity of a zeroth thermodynamic law for non-equilibrium systems. In order to describe the thermodynamics of glassy systems an extra parameter has been introduced, the effectiveExpand
Slow dynamics due to entropic barriers in the one-dimensional ‘descent model’
We propose a novel one-dimensional simple model without disorder exhibiting slow dynamics and aging at the zero temperature limit. This slow dynamics is due to entropic barriers. We exactly solve theExpand
Exactly solvable model glass with facilitated dynamics
A model glass with fast and slow processes is studied. The statics is simple and the facilitated slow dynamics is exactly solvable. The main features of a fragile glass appear: Kauzmann transition,Expand
Thermodynamic picture of the glassy state
A picture for the thermodynamics of the glassy state is introduced. It assumes that one extra parameter, the effective temperature, is needed to describe the glassy state. This explains the classicalExpand
Glass transition and rigidity in the aging linear harmonic oscillator model
Abstract Rigidity theory in glasses was originally formulated to understand the relationship between network topology and glass forming ability, the later given by the minimal cooling rate requiredExpand
Stimulated and spontaneous relaxation in glassy systems
Recent numerical simulations of a disordered system have shown the existence of two different relaxational processes characterizing the relaxation observed in structural glasses. The existence ofExpand
Universal dependence of the fluctuation?dissipation ratio on the transition rates in trap models
We investigate violations of the fluctuation?dissipation theorem in two classes of trap models by studying the influence of the perturbing field on the transition rates. We show that for perturbedExpand

Nonequilibrium dynamics and aging in the three-dimensional Ising spin-glass model
The low temperature dynamics of the three-dimensional Ising spin-glass in zero field with a discrete bond distribution is investigated via MC simulations. The thermoremanent magnetization is found toExpand
On mean field glassy dynamics out of equilibrium
We study the off equilibrium dynamics of a mean field disordered systems which can be interpreted both as long range interaction spin glass and as a particle in a random potential. The statics ofExpand
Phase Space Diffusion and Low Temperature Aging
We study the dynamical evolution of a system with a phase space consisting of configurations with random energies. The dynamics we use is of Glauber type. It allows for some dynamical evolution andExpand
Out of equilibrium dynamics in spin-glasses and other glassy systems
We review recent theoretical progress on glassy dynamics, with special emphasis on the importance and universality of the ``aging regime'', which is relevant to many experimental situations. TheExpand
Langevin dynamics of the Lebowitz - Percus model
We revisit the hard-spheres lattice gas model in the spherical approximation proposed by Lebowitz and Percus. Although no disorder is present in the model, we find that the short-range dynamicalExpand
Long-time regime and scaling of correlations in a simple model with glassy behaviour
We investigate the long-time regime of a zero-temperature kinetic model with glassy behaviour, introduced recently. In this regime, the energy density and its two-time correlation function are foundExpand
Ageing classification in glassy dynamics
We study the out-of-equilibrium dynamics of several models exhibiting ageing. We attempt to identify various types of ageing systems using a phase space point of view. We introduce a trialExpand

We show that, in nonequilibrium systems with small heat flows, there is a time-scale-dependent effective temperature that plays the same role as the thermodynamical temperature in that it controlsExpand
Error threshold in simple landscapes
It is shown that, in both cases, the error threshold is analogous to a first-order thermodynamical transition, where the overlap between the average genotype and the optimal one drops discontinuously to zero. Expand
