Separation of Variables in the Anisotropic Shottky–Frahm Model

  • T. V. SkrypnykEmail author


We construct separated coordinates for the completely anisotropic Shottky–Frahm model on an arbitrary coadjoint orbit of SO(4). We find explicit reconstruction formulas expressing dynamical variables in terms of the separation coordinates and write the equations of motion in the Abel-type form.
