Time-dependent thermodynamic properties of the Ising model from damage spreading

The relationship between damage spreading and static thermodynamic properties in the Ising model developed by Coniglioet al. is here extended to include time-dependent thermodynamic quantities. We exploit this new result to measure the time-dependent spin correlation function from damage spreading in the Ising model with heat bath and Glauber dynamics. Until now, only static thermodynamic quantities have been correctly determined from damage spreading, and even then, only with heat bath dynamics. We also show that there are significant differences between the kinetics of damage spreading as found in heat bath and Glauber dynamics.
