AbstractWe give a brief review of violations of the fluctuation-dissipation theorem (FDT) in out-of-equilibrium systems; in mean field scenarios the corresponding fluctuation-dissipation (FD) plots can, in the limit of long times, be used to define a {em effective temperature} $ eff$ that shares many properties of the true thermodynamic temperature $T$. We discuss carefully how correlation and response functions need to be represented to obtain meaningful limiting FD plots in {em non-mean field} systems. A minimum requirement on the resulting effective temperatures is that they should be independent of the observable whose correlator and response are being considered; we show for two simple models with glassy dynamics (Bouchaud’s trap model and the Glauber-Ising chain at zero temperature) that this is generically not the case. Consequences for the wider applicability of effective temperatures derived from FD relations are discussed; one intriguing possibility is that at least the limit of the FDT violation factor for well separated times may generically be observable-independent and so could yield a meaningful $ eff$.
