Question: Central Force Motion

I know this is a mathematics forum, but I think that there are many faculty members and others here directly or indirectly affiliated with physics.

Again from Goldstein's, "Classical Mechanics" Chapter 8, The Hamilton Equations Of Motion.

The question is:

Write the problem of central force motion of two mass points in Hamiltonian formulation, eliminating the cyclic variables, and reducing the problem to quadratures.
