Revisiting Separation of Variables in Hamilton-Jacobi Equations: Conclusion, Statements and More

Too Long; Didn't Read

We believe that the statement made in the papers 1, 2 about new scientific results in the problem of complete separation of variables in the HamiltonJacobi equation for geodesics does not correspond to reality. We did not find any new results in comparison with those contained in the theorem on necessary and sufficient conditions of Vladimir N. Shapovalov. The results of the article in question, unlike the original ones, have omissions, and the article contains incorrect statements.

Conclusion

Summarising, we believe that the statement made in the papers [1, 2] about new scientific results in the problem of complete separation of variables in the HamiltonJacobi equation for geodesics does not correspond to reality. We did not find any new results in comparison with those contained in the theorem on necessary and sufficient conditions of Vladimir N. Shapovalov. The results of the article in question, unlike the original ones, have omissions, and the article contains incorrect statements. Thus, the methods and results proposed in the works [1, 2] do not contain scientific novelty and represent a special case of the theory of complete separation of variables in the free Hamilton-Jacobi equation, finally constructed in the 70s of the last century.
