We determine the S-matrix that describes scattering of arbitrary bound states
in the light-cone string theory in AdS5 x S5. The corresponding construction
relies on the Yangian symmetry and the superspace formalism for the bound state
representations. The basic analytic structure supporting the S-matrix entries
turns out to be the hypergeometric function 4F3. We show that for particular
bound state numbers it reproduces all the scattering matrices previously
obtained in the literature. Our findings should be relevant for the TBA and
Luescher approaches to the finite-size spectral problem. They also shed some
light on the construction of the universal R-matrix for the centrally-extended
psu(2|2) superalgebra.
