Abstract

An atom (B) situated near a plane of atoms (A) experiences an interaction potential energy V = (V2 + V3 + ... The leading term is the sum over the monlayer of 2-body interactions. We compute here the 3-body correction V3. Numerical results are presented for the case of noble gases, H and CH4. For H or He near a Xe layer, V3 reduces the well depth by ~ 10%.
