A large set of high precision cross sections, vector Ax, A y and tensor Axx, Axy, Ayy analyzing powers for the 1 H(\vec d, pp)n breakup reaction were measured at 130 MeV beam energy with the detection system covering a large part of the phase space. Results are compared with rigorous theoretical calculations employing various models of the three-nucleon system dynamics. The cross section data allowed to establish evidence for three-nucleon force contributions and to confirm predictions of sizable effect of the Coulomb force in the breakup reaction. Analyzing power data are generally quite well described by theoretical predictions even with pure NN interactions. However, in some regions discrepancies has been observed for tensor analyzing powers, only rarely cured by inclusion of the three nucleon force. This indicates incompletness of the present-day treatment of the spin part of three nucleon system dynamics.
