The common theme of this talk is “probing the nuclear dynamics at low energies”. This subtitle implies the study of nuclear systems at rather large internucleon distances. We will focus our attention on the three-nucleon (3N) system and our goal here is to explore the role of 3N forces in the 3N continuum. The result anticipated from such a study may turn out to be trivial, considering our restriction to low energies, i.e., sizeable internucleon distances. Traditionally, one expects 3N forces in the continuum to be important only at fairly high energies (EN > 100 MeV) where the three nucleons can come closer together. However, experimental evidence, some of which may be controversial, makes 3N-force studies at low energies not only interesting, but also necessary.
