Stretched-exponential behavior and random walks on diluted hypercubic lattices
MetadataShow full item record
Diffusion on a diluted hypercube has been proposed as a model for glassy relaxation and is an example of the more general class of stochastic processes on graphs. In this article we determine numerically through large-scale simulations the eigenvalue spectra for this stochastic process and calculate explicitly the time evolution for the autocorrelation function and for the return probability, all at criticality, with hypercube dimensions N up to N = 28. We show that at long times both relaxation functions can be described by stretched exponentials with exponent 1/3 and a characteristic relaxation time which grows exponentially with dimension N. The numerical eigenvalue spectra are consistent with analytic predictions for a generic sparse network model.
