How to Classify Three-Body Forces – And Why

  • H. W. Grießhammer


For systems with only short-range forces and shallow two-body bound states, the typical strength of any three-body force in all partial waves, including external currents, is systematically estimated by renormalization-group arguments in the effective field theory of point-like interactions. The underlying principle and some consequences in particular in nuclear physics are discussed. Details and a better bibliography can be found in ref. [1].
