VTechWorks staff will be away for the Thanksgiving holiday beginning at noon on Wednesday, November 22, through Friday, November 24, and will not be replying to requests during this time. Thank you for your patience, and happy holidays!
Effects of violating detailed balance on critical dynamics
We present an overview of the effects of detailed-balance violating perturbations on the universal static and dynamic scaling behavior near a critical point. It is demonstrated that the standard critical dynamics universality classes are generally quite robust: In systems with nonconserved order parameter, detailed balance is effectively restored at criticality. This also holds for models with conserved order parameter, and isotropic nonequilibrium perturbations. Genuinely novel features are found only for models with conserved order parameter and spatially anisotropic noise correlations.
