This paper studies rates of decay to equilibrium for the Becker-Doring equations with subcritical initial data. In particular, algebraic rates of decay are established when initial perturbations of equilibrium have polynomial moments. This is proved by using new dissipation estimates in polynomially weighted l1 spaces, operator decomposition techniques from kinetic theory, and interpolation estimates from the study of traveling waves.
