        ACCULINNA theory group


::Special topics::


ACCULINA group employs several people who work mainly in the field of theory and on the theoretical support of experimental activities of the group. The origins of the group can be tracked to the so called "Kurchatov few-body school" which in the Soviet times was one of the strongest scientific schools in this field. The theoretical "subsystem" of ACCULINNA group possess a unique expertise in the studies of three-body phenomena in discrete spectrum and continuum.
