I give an overview on a recently developed approach to the three-body Coulomb problem. I argue that the set of Faddeev–Noble and Lippmann-Schwinger integral equations provide unique solution. The integral equations are solved in Coulomb–Sturmian–space representation. The power of the method is demonstrated by numerical illustrations, and the results indicate that this is a viable method.
