Abstract

The Kovacs protocol, based on the temperature shift experiment originally conceived by A.J. Kovacs for glassy polymers, is implemented in an exactly solvable dynamical model. This model is characterized by interacting fast and slow modes represented respectively by spherical spins and harmonic oscillator variables. Due to this fundamental property, the model reproduces the characteristic non-monotonic evolution known as the ``Kovacs effect'', observed in polymers, in granular materials and models of molecular liquids, when similar experimental protocols are implemented.
