Transforming Stäckel Hamiltonians of Benenti type to polynomial form
Pages: 711 – 734
In this paper we discuss two canonical transformations that turn Stäckel separable Hamiltonians of Benenti type into polynomial form: transformation to Viète coordinates and transformation to Newton coordinates. Transformation to Newton coordinates has been applied to these systems only very recently and in this paper we present a new proof that this transformation indeed leads to polynomial form of Stäckel Hamiltonians of Benenti type. Moreover we present all geometric ingredients of these Hamiltonians in both Viète and Newton coordinates.
