A variational method is used to study the ground state of . Expectation values are computed with a cluster expansion for the noncentral correlations in the wave function; the central correlations and exchanges are treated to all orders by Monte Carlo integration. The expansion has good convergence. Results are reported for the Argonne two-nucleon and Urbana VII three-nucleon potentials.
