Lattice QCD calculations provide an ab initio access to hadronic process. These calculations are usu ally performed in a small cubic volume with periodic boundary conditions. The infinite volume extrapolations for three-body systems are indispensable to understand many systems of high current interest. We derive the three-body quantization condition in a finite volume using an effective field theory in the particle-dimer picture.
Our work shows a powerful and transparent method to read off three-body physical observables from lattice simulations. In this paper, we review the formalism, quantization condition, spectrum analysis and energy shifts calculation both for 3-body bound states and scattering states.
