The authors give a microlocal resolvent estimate for general quantum \(N\)- body problems. This estimate consists in multiplying to the left the out- going boundary value of the resolvent, by a pseudodifferential operator whose symbol is supported in an incoming region of the phase space. Then the resulting operator appears to be bounded on some weighted \(L^ 2\)- spaces. The proof relies on Mourre’s commutator estimates.
