We show simulation results for longitudinally expanding gauge and scalar field theories as they approach thermal equilibrium. Most remarkably, we find a common nonthermal attractor solution in a characteristic momentum regime. As a consequence, important aspects of the evolution towards equilibrium turn out to be insensitive to the details of the underlying theory.
