pd capture processes at various energies have been analyzed based on soluti
ons of three-nucleon (3N)-Faddeev equations and using modern NN forces. The
application of the Siegert theorem is compared to the explicit use of pi-
and rho -like exchange currents connected to the AV18 NN interaction. Overa
ll good agree ment with cross sections and spin observables has been obtain
ed but leaving room for improvement in some cases. Feasibility studies for
three-nucleon forces (3NF's) consistently included in the 3N continuum and
the 3N bound state have been performed as well.
