*N* = 3 spa- tially uniform three-dimensional Bose gases of particles labeled, e.g., by different hyperfine magnetic quantum numbers, with identical inter- and intra-species interactions. In this system, the approach of a non-thermal fixed point is marked by low-energy phase excitations self-similarly redistributing towards smaller wave numbers. During prescaling, the full *U(N)* symmetry of the model is broken while the conserved transport, reflecting the remaining *U(1)* symmetries, leads to the buildup of a rescaling quasicondensate distribution.

*N* distinguishable spatially uniform Bose gases with *U(N)*-symmetric interactions. The effective theory describes interacting Goldstone modes of the total and relative- phase excitations. It is similar in character to the non-linear Luttinger-liquid description of low-energy phonons in a single dilute Bose gas, with the markable difference of a universal non-local coupling function depending, in the large-*N* limit, only on momentum, single-particle mass, and density of the gas. Our theory provides a perturbative description of the non-thermal fixed point, technically easy to apply to experimentally relevant cases with a small number of fields *N*. Numerical results for *N* = 3 allow us to characterize the analytical form of the scaling function and confirm the analytically predicted scaling exponents. The fixed point which is dominated by the relative phases is found to be Gaussian, while a non-Gaussian fixed point is anticipated to require scaling evolution with a distinctly lower power of time.

The videos show the approach of the three-component 3D Bose gas towards the non-thermal fixed point. The right panels show a 2D cut through the center of the cubic volume. The upper and middle videos show the same evolution, with the second one entailing a higher resolution in time. In both videos, the panels show (from left to right, in columns upper, then lower) the single-particle radial momentum distribution and the corresponding first-order coherence function *g*_{1}^{(1)}(*r*) as a function of distance *r*, the radial momentum spectrum *C*_{12}(*k*) of the second-order correlation function *g*_{12}^{(2)}(*r*) of the relative phases between components 1 and 2, and *g*_{12}^{(2)}(*r*) itself, as well as 2D cuts in the plane *x* = 0 through the 3D distributions of the density *n*_{1}(*y,z*), the relative phase |*φ*_{1} - *φ*_{2}|, the phase *φ*_{1}, and the cosine of the relative phase cos|*φ*_{1} - *φ*_{2}|. In the third video, the rightmost column is replaced by the total density and phase distributions.
