Abstract:

Two distinct approaches have been followed to produce an approximate expression for the third virial coefficient of a quantum system in terms of the pertinent two-particle quantities standard T matrix elements and bound state eigenvalues and eigenstates One approach is based on the T approximation for the self-energy in the theory of temperature Green functions, and the other uses the diagrams which represent the various terms in the multiple-scattering expansion of three-particle T operator.
