Abstract
We provide detailed arguments on how to derive properties of generalized form factors, originally proposed by one of the authors (M.K.) and Weisz twenty years ago, solely based on the assumption of "minimal analyticity" and the validity of the LSZ reduction formalism. These properties constitute consistency equations which allow the explicit evaluation of the nparticle form factors once the scattering matrix is known. The equations give rise to a matrix RiemannHilbert problem. Exploiting the "offshell" Bethe ansatz we propose a general formula for form factors for an odd number of particles. For the SineGordon model alias the massive Thirring model we exemplify the general solution for several operators. We carry out a consistency check for the solution of the three particle form factor against the Thirring model perturbation theory and thus confirm the general formalism.
