Title: Quantitative relativistic effects in the three-nucleon problem

Abstract

The quantitative impact of the requirement of relativistic invariance in the three-nucleon problem is examined within the framework of Poincare invariant quantum mechanics. In the case of the bound state, and for a wide variety of model implementations and reasonable interactions, most of the quantitative effects come from kinematic factors that can easily be incorporated into a nonrelativistic momentum-space three-body code.
