We study aspects of the quantum and classical dynamics of a 3-body system in 3D space with interaction depending only on mutual distances. The study is restricted to solutions in the space of relative motion which are functions of mutual distances only. It is shown that the ground state (and some other states) in the quantum case and the planar trajectories in the classical case are of this type. The quantum (and classical) system for which these states are eigenstates is found and its… 

The quantum n-body problem in dimension d ⩾ n – 1: ground state

We employ generalized Euler coordinates for the n body system in dimensional space, which consists of the centre-of-mass vector, relative (mutual) mass-independent distances rij and angles as

Three-body closed chain of interactive (an)harmonic oscillators and the algebra sl(4)

In this work we study 2- and 3-body oscillators with quadratic and sextic pairwise potentials which depend on relative distances, , between particles. The two-body harmonic oscillator is

Two-body neutral Coulomb system in a magnetic field at rest: From hydrogen atom to positronium

A simple uniform approximation for the nodeless wavefunction is constructed for a {\it neutral} system of two Coulomb charges of different masses $(-q,m_1)$ and $(q,m_2)$ at rest in a constant

In two- and three-dimensional systems, the non-analytical nature of the wave function is characterized by the appearance of logarithmic terms, reminiscent of those that appear as both electrons approach the nucleus of the helium atom.
