# Non-relativistic bound states in a moving thermal bath

@article{Escobedo2011NonrelativisticBS, title={Non-relativistic bound states in a moving thermal bath}, author={Miguel {\'A}ngel Escobedo and Massimo Mannarelli and Joan Soto}, journal={Physical Review D}, year={2011}, volume={84}, pages={016008} }

We study the propagation of non-relativistic bound states moving at constant velocity across a homogeneous thermal bath and we develop the effective field theory which is relevant in various dynamical regimes. We consider values of the velocity of the bound state ranging from moderate to highly relativistic and temperatures at all relevant scales smaller than the mass of the particles that form the bound state. In particular, we consider two distinct temperature regimes, corresponding to…
