Summary: To our knowledge, there are no expressions (not necessarily rigorously proved mathematically) for the eigenfunctions of a system of three or more charged quantum particles. For a system of three such identical particles, we suggest an asymptotic formula describing the behavior of eigenfunctions at infinity in the configuration space.
