A Test of the Calculability of a Three-Body Relativistic, Cluster Decomposable, Unitary, Covariant Scattering Theory

  • Marcus Alfred
  • James Lindesay


In this work a calculation of the cluster decomposable formalism for relativistic scattering as developed by Lindesay, Markevich, Noyes, and Pastrana (LMNP) is made for an ultra-light quantum model. After highlighting areas of the theory vital for calculation, a description is made of the process to go from the general theory to an eigen-integral equation for bound state problems, and calculability is demonstrated. An ultra-light quantum exchange model is then developed to examine calculability.
