Summary: The center-of-mass system for many bodies in \(\mathbb R^3\) admits a natural action of the rotation group \(\mathrm{SO}(3)\). According to the orbit types for the \(\mathrm{SO}(3)\) action, the center-of-mass system \(M\) is stratified into strata. A quantum Hamiltonian system and a classical Lagrangian system are defined on \(L^2(M)\) and on \(T(M)\), respectively. These systems are also stratified according to the stratification of \(M\), and then reduced by the rotational symmetry, respectively.
