One of the simplest examples of nonequilibrium dynamics varying in the presence of a conservation law is the phase ordering process after a quenching through a critical point: the relaxation process of a lattice gas differs from that of a magnet, while their equilibrium properties are the same. We show that the increase of the interaction range can reinforce their difference, speeding-up nonconserved dynamics and almost freezing conserved one [1]. Conserved quantities are also relevant to obtain a condensation-like transition [2]. We will first introduce a stochastic, non interacting model with different physical interpretations, then we will discuss the effect of interactions on the relaxation dynamics [3].
