"Role of initial conditions in ageing of quenched systems"


Ageing phenomenon is observed in slowly relaxing nonequilibrium systems.
Examples not only include complex glassy systems, but also simple 
statistical mechanics systems when rapidly quenched in temperature.  
These quenched systems usually show scaling properties and universal 
behaviour while ageing I shall discuss some of these out-of-equilibrium 
properties in an exactly solvable example, long-range spherical model, 
and show how the ageing classes depend on classes of initial
