We briefly recall the history of the Nijenhuis torsion of (1, 1)-tensors on manifolds and of the lesser-known Haantjes torsion. We then show how the Haantjes manifolds of Magri and the symplectic Haantjes structures of Tempesta and Tondo generalize the classical approach to integrable systems in the bi-Hamiltonian and symplectic Nijenhuis formalisms, the sequence of powers of the recursion operator being replaced by a family of commuting Haantjes operators. 
Higher Haantjes Brackets and Integrability
We propose a new, infinite class of brackets generalizing the Frölicher– Nijenhuis bracket. This class can be reduced to a family of generalized Nijenhuis torsions recently introduced. In particular,Expand
Haantjes Algebras of the Lagrange Top
We study a symplectic-Haantjes manifold and a Poisson–Haantjes manifold for the Lagrange top and compute a set of Darboux–Haantjes coordinates. Such coordinates are separation variables for theExpand
A New Class of Generalized Haantjes Tensors and Nilpotency
We propose a new infinite class of generalized binary tensor fields. The first representative of this class is the known Fr\"olicher--Nijenhuis bracket. Also, this new family of tensors reduces toExpand
Haantjes algebras and diagonalization
Abstract We introduce the notion of Haantjes algebra: It consists of an assignment of a family of operator fields on a differentiable manifold, each of them with vanishing Haantjes torsion. They areExpand
A New family of higher-order Generalized Haantjes Tensors, Nilpotency and Integrability

Haantjes Structures for the Jacobi-Calogero Model and the Benenti Systems
In the context of the theory of symplectic-Haantjes manifolds, we construct the Haantjes structures of generalized Stackel systems and, as a particular case, of the quasi-bi-Hamiltonian systems. AsExpand
Algebraic identity for the Schouten tensor and bi-Hamiltonian systems
Abstract A ( 0 , 3 )-tensor T i j k is introduced in an invariant form. Algebraic identities are derived that connect the Schouten ( 2 , 1 )-tensor S i j k and tensor T i j k with the NijenhuisExpand
NijenhuisG-manifolds and Lenard bicomplexes: A new approach to KP systems
We suggest a method to extend the theory of recursion operators to integrable Hamiltonian systems in two-space dimensions, like KP systems. The approach aims to stress the conceptual unity of theExpand
General algebraic identities for the Nijenhuis and Haantjes tensors
We obtain general algebraic identities for the Nijenhuis and Haantjes tensors on an arbitrary manifold?Mn. For n=3 we derive special algebraic identities connected with the Cartan-Killing form?(u,v)H.
Poisson-Nijenhuis structures
We study the deformation, defined by a Nijenhuis operator, and the dualization, defined by a Poisson bivector, of the Lie bracket of vector fields on a manifold and, more generally, of the LieExpand
Recursion Operators and Frobenius Manifolds
In this note I exhibit a "discrete homotopy" which joins the category of F-manifolds to the category of Poisson-Nijenhuis manifolds, passing through the category of Frobenius manifolds.
Compatible Structures on Lie Algebroids and Monge-Ampère Operators
We study pairs of structures, such as the Poisson-Nijenhuis structures, on the tangent bundle of a manifold or, more generally, on a Lie algebroid or a Courant algebroid. These composite structuresExpand
Haantjes Manifolds of Classical Integrable Systems
A general theory of classical integrable systems is proposed, based on the geometry of the Haantjes tensor. We introduce the class of symplectic-Haantjes manifolds (or $\omega \mathcal{H}$ manifold),Expand
Differential-geometric approach to the integrability of hydrodynamic chains: the Haantjes tensor
The integrability of an m-component system of hydrodynamic type, ut = V(u)ux, by the generalized hodograph method requires the diagonalizability of the m ×  m matrix V(u). This condition is known toExpand
A Simple model of the integrable Hamiltonian equation
A method of analysis of the infinite‐dimensional Hamiltonian equations which avoids the introduction of the Backlund transformation or the use of the Lax equation is suggested. This analysis is basedExpand
