The possibility of using the generalized WKB method for studying the steady states of a single-frequency system in three-dimensional potential fields which do not allow the variables to be separated in the Schrödinger equation is considered. Approximate wave functions are constructed; these transform into the well-known van Horn wave functions in the quasiclassical case.
