Abstract

Integrable systems that are connected with orthogonal separation of variables in complex Riemannian spaces of constant curvature are considered herein. An isomorphism with the hyperbolic Gaudin magnet, previously pointed out by one of the authors, extends to coordinates of this type. The complete classification of these separable coordinate systems is provided by means of the corresponding L matrices for the Gaudin magnet. The limiting procedures (or ε calculus) which relate various degenerate orthogonal coordinate systems play a crucial role in the classification of all such systems.
