Title: Flat minimal quantizations of Stäckel systems and quantum separability

In this paper, we consider the problem of quantization of classical Stäckel systems and the problem of separability of related quantum Hamiltonians. First, using the concept of Stäckel transform, natural Hamiltonian systems from a given Riemann space are expressed by some flat coordinates of related Euclidean configuration space. Then, the so-called flat minimal quantization procedure is applied in order to construct an appropriate Hermitian operator in the respective Hilbert space. Finally, we distinguish a class of Stäckel systems which remains separable after any of admissible flat minimal quantizations. - Highlights: • Using Stäckel transform, separable Hamiltonians are expressed by flat coordinates. • The concept of admissible flat minimal quantizations is developed. • The class of Stäckel systems, separable after minimal flat quantization is established. • Separability of related stationary Schrödinger equations is presented in explicit form.
