Few Body Syst
ISSN (printed): 0177-7963. ISSN (electronic): 1432-5411.
The journal is devoted to the publication of original research work both experimental and theoretical in the field of few-body systems. Conceptually such systems are understood as consisting of a small number of well-defined constituent structures. Investigations of the behaviour of these systems form the central subject matter of the journal. Systems for which an equivalent one-body description is available or can be designed and large systems for which specific many-body methods are needed are outside the scope of the journal. The focus of interest lies in the research methods properties and results characteristic of few-body systems. Particular examples of few-body systems are light nuclei light atoms small molecules but also celestial systems "elementary" particles (considered as systems of few constituents) or larger systems with a few-particle substructure. The principal aim of the journal is to bring together competent work from various fields of physics such as particle nuclear atomic molecular and condensed-matter physics and also from astrophysics astronomy mathematics and chemistry thereby fostering research done on related problems in different areas of natural sciences. While concentrating on few-body systems which can also be characterized as generally amenable to rigorous solutions the journal stresses interdisciplinarity through the exchange of ideas methods results experience and knowledge gathered in neighbouring fields. Beyond the publication of articles the journal as a forum for the community of scientists engaged in the study of few-body problems also provides for the rapid dissemination of actual scientific and practical information in separate News Sections; these include abstracts of recent preprints a calendar of conferences and meetings book reviews announcements etc. Though the emphasis is on regular research articles the journal publishes also papers in the form of letters rapid communications comments and from time to time reviews or progress reports.
