Abstract

We investigate the aging properties of the one-dimensional voter model with long-range interactions in its ordering kinetics. In this system, an agent, S-i = +/- 1, positioned at a lattice vertex i, copies the state of another one located at a distance r, selected randomly with a probability P(r) proportional to r(-alpha). Employing both analytical and numerical methods, we compute the two-time correlation function G (r; t, s) (t >= s) between the state of a variable S-i at time s and that of another one, at distance r, at time t. At time t, the memory of an agent of its former state at time s, expressed by the autocorrelation function A(t, s) = G(r = 0; t, s), decays algebraically for alpha > 1 as [L(t)/L(s)](-lambda), where Lis a time-increasing coherence length and lambda is the Fisher-Huse exponent. We find lambda = 1 for alpha > 2, and lambda = 1/(alpha - 1) for 1 < alpha <= 2 . For alpha <= 1, instead, there is an exponential decay, as in the mean field. Then, in contrast with what is known for the related Ising model, here we find that lambda increases upon decreasing alpha. The space-dependent correlation G (r; t, s) obeys a scaling symmetry G (r; t, s) = g [r/L(s); L(t)/L(s)] for alpha > 2. Similarly, for 1 < alpha <= 2, one has G (r; t, s) = g [r/L(t); L(t)/L(s)], where the length L regulating two-time correlations now differs from the coherence length as L proportional to L-delta, with delta = 1 + 2 (2 - alpha).
