Summary: The three-body scattering problem with finite pair potentials for one-dimensional case is investigated. The asymptotic function \(\chi_0\), which satisfies the three-body Schrödinger equation in whole configuration space outside of compact domain \(\Omega\), where the supports of all three pair potentials cross each other, has been presented in a mathematically rigorous way. For large distances \(|x|\to\infty\) the function \(\chi_0\) determines the asymptotics of the solution up to the circular wave with smooth coefficient in whole configuration space. The method is based on analogies between few-body scattering problem and diffraction one of the plane wave on the system of half-transparent infinite screens. Presented here formalism are believed to be useful also for the few-body scattering problem of higher dimensions.
