Phase correlations, density fluctuations and three-body loss rates are relevant for many experiments in quasi one-dimensional geometries. Extended mean-field theory is used to evaluate correlation functions up to third order for a quasi one-dimensional trapped Bose gas at zero and finite temperature. At zero temperature and in the homogeneous limit, we also study the transition from the weakly correlated Gross-Pitaevskii regime to the strongly correlated Tonks-Girardeau regime analytically. We
