  title={Covariant equations for the three-body bound state},
  author={Alfred Stadler and F. -J. Gross and Michael D. Frank},
The covariant spectator (or Gross) equations for the bound state of three identical spin 1/2 particles, in which two of the three interacting particles are always on shell, are developed and reduced to a form suitable for numerical solution. The equations are first written in operator form and compared to the Bethe-Salpeter equation, then expanded into… CONTINUE READING
