This macroscopic ground-state degeneracy crucially affects the nonequilibrium evolution process followed by a quench to zero (critical) temperature. During the last few years, I and co-authors have studied the nonequilibrium dynamics of TAFI via a dynamic Monte Carlo simulation method employing spin-flip kinetics. Today I will talk about our works - nonequilibrium kinetics of TAFI.

This is a weekly series of informal talks given primarily by members of the soft condensed matter and statistical mechanics groups, but is also open to members of other groups and external visitors. The aim of the series is to promote discussion and learning of various topics at a level suitable to the broad background of the group. Everyone is welcome to attend..
