This is done within the self-adjoint extension scheme of Krein, Visik, and Birman. We show that the Ter-Martirosyan--Skornyakov asymptotics is a condition of self-adjointness only when is imposed in suitable functional spaces, and not just as a point-wise asymptotics, and we discuss the consequences of this fact on a model of two identical fermions and a third particle of different nature.1 aMichelangeli, Alessandro1 aOttolini, Andrea uhttp://urania.sissa.it/xmlui/handle/1963/35195
