Non-equilibrium response and slow equilibration in hard disk systems

The relaxation from a non-equilibrium state to the equilibrium depends on the methodologies and initial conditions. To investigate the microscopic mechanisms of equilibration systematically, we focus on the non-equilibrium response during the equilibration process induced by a disturbance of the homogeneous expansion of the simple hard disk systems. Large scale simulations by event-driven molecular dynamics revealed that an anomalous slow equilibration toward the liquid states emerges when starting from the co-existence phase. The origin of the slow decay mechanism is investigated using the probability distribution of local density and orientational order parameter.Their inhomogeneities seem to cause the anomalous slow equilibration.
