The dynamical properties of a threedimensional model glass, the frustrated Ising lattice gas FILG , are
studied by Monte Carlo simulations. We present results of compression experiments, where the chemical
potential is either slowly or abruptly changed, as well as simulations at constant density. One time quantities
like density and two time quantities like correlations, responses, and mean square displacements are measured,
and the departure from equilibrium clearly characterized. The aging scenario, particularly in the case of density
autocorrelations, is reminiscent of spin glass phenomenology with violations of the fluctuationdissipation
theorem, typical of systems with one replica symmetry breaking. The FILG, as a valid onlattice model of
structural glasses, can be described with tools developed in spin glass theory and, being a finitedimensional
model, can open the way for a systematic study of activated processes in glasses.
