Local Scale-invariance I: z = 2

Part of the Theoretical and Mathematical Physics book series (TMP)


We have seen in the first part of this volume that dynamical scaling plays a central role in the description of ageing phenomena. In this second part, we shall be concerned in particular with the form of the universal scaling functions which may arise in several physical observables. Are there general approaches, independent of the explicit treatment of a specific model, which would allow scaling functions of ageing systems to be predicted ?
