A maximally superintegrable deformation of the N-dimensional quantum Kepler-Coulomb system
The N-dimensional quantum Hamiltonian is shown to be exactly solvable for any real positive value of the parameter η. Algebraically, this Hamiltonian system can be regarded as a new maximally
Classical and quantum higher order superintegrable systems from coalgebra symmetry
The N-dimensional generalization of Bertrand spaces as families of maximally superintegrable (M.S.) systems on spaces with a nonconstant curvature is analyzed. Considering the classification of
Superintegrable Oscillator and Kepler Systems on Spaces of Nonconstant Curvature via the St
The Stackel transform is applied to the geodesic motion on Euclidean space, through the harmonic oscillator and Kepler{Coloumb potentials, in order to obtain ma- ximally superintegrable classical
Classical and quantum superintegrability with applications
A superintegrable system is, roughly speaking, a system that allows more integrals of motion than degrees of freedom. This review is devoted to finite dimensional classical and quantum
Exactly solvable deformations of the oscillator and Coulomb systems and their generalization
We present two maximally superintegrable Hamiltonian systems Hλ and Hη that are defined, respectively, on an N-dimensional spherically symmetric generalization of the Darboux surface of type III and
Modified Laplace-Beltrami quantization of natural Hamiltonian systems with quadratic constants of motion
It is natural to investigate if the quantization of integrable or superintegrable classical Hamiltonian systems is still integrable or superintegrable. We study here this problem in the case of
Superintegrable systems on 3-dimensional curved spaces: Eisenhart formalism and separability
The Eisenhart geometric formalism, which transforms an Euclidean natural Hamiltonian H = T + V into a geodesic Hamiltonian T with one additional degree of freedom, is applied to the four families of
The classical Darboux III oscillator: factorization, Spectrum Generating Algebra and solution to the equations of motion
In a recent paper the so-called Spectrum Generating Algebra (SGA) technique has been applied to the N-dimensional Taub-NUT system, a maximally superintegrable Hamiltonian system which can be


Quantal problems with partial algebraization of the spectrum
We discuss a new class of spectral problems discovered recently which occupies an intermediate position between the exactly-solvable problems (e.g., harmonic oscillator) and all others. The problems
Deformed algebras, position-dependent effective masses and curved spaces: an exactly solvable Coulomb problem
We show that there exist some intimate connections between three unconventional Schrodinger equations based on the use of deformed canonical commutation relations, of a position-dependent effective
Superintegrable systems in Darboux spaces
Almost all research on superintegrable potentials concerns spaces of constant curvature. In this paper we find by exhaustive calculation, all superintegrable potentials in the four Darboux spaces of
Hamiltonian Systems Admitting a Runge–Lenz Vector and an Optimal Extension of Bertrand’s Theorem to Curved Manifolds
Bertrand’s theorem asserts that any spherically symmetric natural Hamiltonian system in Euclidean 3-space which possesses stable circular orbits and whose bounded trajectories are all periodic is
Bertrand spacetimes as Kepler/oscillator potentials
Perlick's classification of (3 + 1)-dimensional spherically symmetric and static spacetimes for which the classical Bertrand theorem holds (Perlick V 1992 Class. Quantum Grav. 9 1009) is revisited.
Three-Dimensional Isotropic Harmonic Oscillator and SU3
A consideration of the eigenvalue problem for the quantum-mechanical three-dimensional isotropic harmonic oscillator leads to a derivation of a conserved symmetric tensor operator, in addition to the
