Analyzes a procedure which allows estimation of the heterogeneous and homogeneous contributions to the nonexponentiality from comparing a two-time and a three-time correlation function. Calculation of the type of relaxation using the procedure; Polymer models used in the analysis; Relevance of local intermolecular interactions for the polymer dynamics.

    The physical origin of stretched exponential relaxation is considered by many as one of the oldest unsolved problems in science. The functional form for stretched exponential relaxation can be deduced from the axiomatic diffusion-trap model of Phillips. The model predicts a topological origin...

    We study continuous time Glauber dynamics for random configurations with local constraints (e.g. proper coloring, Ising and Potts models) on finite graphs with n vertices and of bounded degree. We show that the relaxation time (defined as the reciprocal of the spectral gap |γ1-γ1|) for the...

    We study the warming process of a semi-infinite cylindrical Ising lattice initially ordered and coupled at the boundary to a heat reservoir. The adoption of a proper microcanonical dynamics allows a detailed study of the time evolution of the system. As expected, thermal propagation displays a...

    The relaxation of temperature and concentration of a superfluid [sup 3]He–[sup 4]He mixture with an initial molar concentration of 9.8% [sup 3]He is investigated in the temperature interval 100–500 mK for different values of the heat flux. It is shown that the kinetics of the...

    Magnetic relaxation measurements at different temperatures below the blocking temperature were performed on Mn12-acetate in fields corresponding to the first (zero) resonance. Three temperature regimes could be identified: Below 2.0 K (2.3 K) a square root time dependence is present, indicating...
