@article{Poghosyan2008AbstractCE, title={Abstract cluster expansion with applications to statistical mechanical systems}, author={Suren Poghosyan and Daniel Ueltschi}, journal={Journal of Mathematical Physics}, year={2008}, volume={50}, pages={053509} }

We formulate a general setting for the cluster expansion method and we discuss sufficient criteria for its convergence. We apply the results to systems of classical and quantum particles with stable interactions.
