Abstract A non-relativistic system of three identical particles will display a rich set of universal features known as Efimov physics if the scattering length a is much larger than the range l of the underlying two-body interaction. An appropriate effective theory facilitates the derivation of both results in the a goes to infinity limit and finite-l/a corrections to observables of interest. Here we use such an effective-theory treatment to consider the impact of corrections linear in the two-body effective range, r_s on the three-boson bound-state spectrum and recombination rate for a much greater than r_s . We do this by first deriving results appropriate to the strict limit a goes to infinity in coordinate space. We then extend these results to finite a using once-subtracted momentum-space integral equations. We also discuss the implications of our results for experiments that probe three-body recombination in Bose-Einstein condensates near a Feshbach resonance.
