The angular distributions of the cross section, the proton analyzing power and all of proton polarization transfer coefficients of pd elastic scattering were measured at 250 MeV. The present data are compared with theoretical predictions based on exact solutions of the three-nucleon Faddeev equations and modern realistic nucleon-nucleon potentials combined with three-nucleon forces. These results call for a better understanding of the spin structure of the three-nucleon force and very likely for a full relativistic treatment of the three-nucleon continuum.
