Abstract

The widely used continuum discretized coupled-channels (CDCC) method for approximate calculations of three-body systems is discussed as a truncation of a Faddeev formulation in angular momentum space. A set of coupled equations is presented for converting a CDCC solution into a full solution of the original Schrödinger equation. A practical iterative procedure for solving the equations is outlined, based on the distorted Faddeev equations of Birse and Redish.
