N-Body Systems

Abstract

The designation “N-Body Systems” covers a lot of ground. The exclusion of N = ∞ (nuclear matter, e.g.) and N ≤ 3 helps us somewhat. However, we have to delimit our discussion further in order to represent the emphasis of much of the work carried out in the past few years as well as that reported to this conference. To this end we confine ourselves to the so-called N-particle approach to scattering. By this we mean, essentially, the extension of the Faddeev point of view to the scattering of nonrelativistic systems of finite numbers (≥ 4) of particles which interact through short-range (plus possible Coulomb) potentials. We take this to include the deduction of few-body models of many-particle scattering but not those calculations which only assume such a model as a starting point. The latter work is considered elsewhere in this conference (DS,8). The four-hadron system is also considered elsewhere (DS,7)so that we do not review any of the interesting N = 4 calculations.
