Aging in a Structural Glass

Kob, Walter; Barrat, Jean-Louis;

  • Published: 28 Jul 1998
We discuss the relaxation dynamics of a simple structural glass which has been quenched below its glass transition temperature. We demonstrate that time correlation functions show strong aging effects and investigate in what way the fluctuation dissipation theorem is violated.

[11] More details on the calculation of the response can be found in Ref. [6].

[12] We checked for the linearity of the response by varying V0.
