Proper definition of the action-angle variables
I believe that the author of the article confused the notation when talking about the action-angle variables. In particular, the variable is generally called the angle and is the action. I would like to correct this if there are no objections. Also, one should probably indicate that the derivation holds only for separable in proper separated coordinates .

In accordance with Goldstein's nomenclature, I think you are using the right vocabularies. Please make the necessary correction. Thanks!LaoChen (talk) 05:27, 17 October 2010 (UTC)
