Abstract: A quantum field-theoretical model which describes a spatially nonhomogeneous one-dimensional nonrelativistic repulsive Bose gas in an external harmonic potential is considered. The two-point thermal correlation function of the Bose gas is calculated in the framework of the functional integration approach. The calculations are done in the coordinate representation. The method of successive integration first over the ``high-energy'' functional variables and then over the ``low-energy'' ones is used. The effective action functional for the low-energy variables is calculated in one-loop approximation. The functional integral representation for the correlation function is obtained in terms of the low-energy variables and is estimated with the help of stationary phase approximation. The asymptotics of the correlation function is studied in the limit when the temperature tends to zero while the volume occupied by the nonhomogeneous Bose gas increases infinitely. It is demonstrated that the behavior of the thermal correlation function in this limit is power-like and is governed by the critical exponent that depends on the spatial and thermal arguments.
