Abstract: By scanning some special configurations on the ground state potential energy surface of [He3H]+ molecule with the CCSD(T)/aug-cc-pVTZ method, the influence of three-body interaction in the traditional many-body expansion is discussed. It is found that to describe the potential even in such a simple system the inclusion of three-body interaction is necessary. On the other hand, around the stable structures the potential expansion up to three-body interaction is fairly accurate, even though the error grows up in the repulsive region. The equilibrium geometries of [He4H]+ are also investigated. It is shown that there exists a core of [He2H]+ in the [HenH]+ clusters. Fig.5 Tab.3 Ref.27
