I studied the non-equilibrium response of an initial Néel state under time evolution with the Kitaev honeycomb model. With isotropic interactions (J_x = J_y = J_zJx=Jy=Jz) the system quickly loses its antiferromagnetic order and crosses over into a steady state valence bond solid, which can be inferred from the long-range dimer correlations. There is no signature of a dynamical phase transition. Upon including anisotropy (J_x = J_y \neq J_zJx=Jy≠Jz), an exponentially long prethermal regimedoi:10.21468/scipostphys.7.5.071 fatcat:qh7gdvs7hbdktpbcurzrxntlbi
