Mass asymmetry relaxation as manifested in fission and heavy ion-induced binary reactions is reviewed. In fission, the dynamics is characteristic of a fully damped case and is well described by a stochastic theory. In heavy ion deep inelastic collisions and quasi-fission, on the other hand, the relaxation is incomplete giving rise to the possibility of studying its time evolution.
