F. Coester and W. N. Polyzou


For an arbitrary number of particles an explicit construction is given for direct interactions satisfying cluster separability (macrolocality). The Hamiltonian is in many ways similar to the nonrelativistic many-body Hamiltonian. Under conditions of physical interest the strength of the N-body interaction decreases rapidly with increasing N.
