Abstract: By using a sum-rule approach we investigate the transition between the hydrodynamic and the collisionless regime of the collective modes in a one-dimensional (1D) harmonically trapped Bose gas. Both the weakly interacting gas and the Tonks-Girardeau limits are considered. We predict that the excitation of the dipole compression mode is characterized in the high-temperature collisionless regime by a beating signal of two different frequencies (omega(z) and 3 omega(z)), while in the high-temperature collisional regime, the excitation consists of a single frequency (root 7 omega(z)). This behavior differs from the case of the lowest breathing mode whose excitation consists of a single frequency (2 omega(z)) in both regimes. Our predictions for the dipole compression mode open promising perspectives for the experimental investigation of collisional effects in 1D configurations.
