Applications of the Faddeev Equations to Atomic and Nuclear Three-Body Systems

Walter Gloeckle
Guest Professor, UConn Physics Department

As an example for applying the 3-body Faddeev equations to a 3-atom system, the calculation of the He trimer is presented. Possible advantages for using the Faddeev equations in three atom systems over using directly the Schroedinger equation are pointed out. Further demonstration of the power of the Faddeev equation, however, is provided in the applications to nuclear physics. Examples for cross sections and spin observables in elastic nucleon--deuteron scattering and for the complete 3-nucleon break up are shown, based on state-of-the-art nuclear forces.
