Abstract: Formulas for the resolvent ${(z - H)^{ - 1}}$ are derived, where $H = {H_0} + {\Sigma _{i < j}}{\lambda _{ij}}{V_{ij}}$ is an N particle Schrödinger operator with the center of mass motion removed. For a large class of two-body potentials and generic couplings $\{ {\lambda _{ij}}\}$, these formulas are used to prove asymptotic completeness in the $N \leqslant 4$ body problem when the space dimension is $m \geqslant 3$. The allowed potentials belong to a space of dilation analytic multiplication operators which fall off more rapidly than ${r^{ - 2 - \varepsilon }}$ at $\infty$. In particular, Yukawa potentials, generalized Yukawa potentials, and potentials of the form ${(1 + r)^{ - 2 - \varepsilon }}$ are allowed.
