Momentum distribution of a dilute unitary Bose gas with three-body losses

By Sébastien Laurent, Xavier Leyronas and Frédéric Chevy


4 pages + supplemental material.International audienceUsing Boltzmann's equation, we study the effect of three-body losses on the momentum distribution of a homogeneous unitary Bose gas in the dilute limit where quantum correlations are negligible. We calculate the momentum distribution of the gas and show that inelastic collisions are quantitatively as important as a second order virial correction
