Let Ex be a collection of i.i.d. exponential random variables. Symmetric Bouchaud's model on ℤ2 is a Markov chain X(t) whose transition rates are given by wxy = ν exp (−βEx) if x, y are neighbours in ℤ2. We study the behaviour of two correlation functions: ℙ[X(tw+t) = X(tw)] and ℙ[X(t') = X(tw) ∀ t'∈ [tw, tw + t]]. We prove the (sub)aging behaviour of these functions when β > 1.
