Abstract: We study the dynamics of a two-dimensional Bose gas after an instantaneous quench of an initially ultracold thermal atomic gas across the Berezinskii-Kosterlitz-Thouless phase transition, confirming via stochastic simulations that the system undergoes phase-ordering kinetics and fulfills the dynamical scaling hypothesis at late-time dynamics. Specifically, we find in that regime the vortex number decaying in time as < N-v > proportional to t(-1), consistent with a dynamical critical exponent z approximate to 2 for both temperature and interaction quenches. Focusing on finite-size boxlike geometries, we demonstrate that such an observation is within current experimental reach.
