We present a relativistic three-body equation to study the stability of the isolated three-body system and the correlations in a medium of finite temperatures and densities. Relativity is implemented utilizing the light-front form. Using a zero-range force we find the relativistic analog of the Thomas collapse and investigate the possibility that the nucleon exists as a Borromean system. Within a systematic Dyson equation approach we calculate the three-body Mott transition and the critical temperature of the color-superconducting phase.
