Emergence of cooperative dynamics in fully packed classical dimers

Tom Oakes, Juan Garrahan & Stephen Powell
We study the behavior of classical dimer coverings of the square lattice - a paradigmatic model for systems subject to constraints - evolving under local stochastic dynamics, by means of Monte Carlo simulations and theoretical arguments. We observe clear signatures of correlated dynamics in both global and local observables and over a broad range of time scales, indicating a breakdown of the simple continuum description that approximates well the statics. We show that this collective...
