Level rearrangement in three-body systems

Abstract : We study systems of three bosons bound by a long-range interaction supplemented by a short-range potential of variable strength. This generalizes the usual two-body exotic atoms where the Coulomb interaction is modified by nuclear forces at short distances. The energy shift due to the short-range part of the interaction combines two-body terms similar to the ones entering the Trueman-Deser formula, and three-body contributions. A phenomenon of level rearrangement is observed, similar to the Zel'dovich effect, by the onset of an additional stable level which is eventually absorbed by the two-body threshold energy, and can be interpreted as an Efimov-like state of the short-range potential.
