Jacobi coordinates have often been used to treat few-particle quantum systems. In this paper, we propose an alternative coordinate system which is very easily generalized as the number of particles becomes larger. We make use of forms of the Laplace--Beltrami operator that are invariant under general coordinate transformations, and use Coulomb Sturmian basis sets to solve the N-body wave equation.
