A theorem is derived which determines higher order first integrals of autonomous holonomic dynamical systems in a general space, provided the collineations and the Killing tensors -- up to the order of the first integral -- of the kinetic metric, defined by the kinetic energy of the system, can be computed. The theorem is applied in the case of Newtonian autonomous conservative dynamical systems of two degrees of freedom, where known and new integrable and superintegrable potentials that admit… 


Higher order first integrals in classical mechanics
We present a practical algorithm for computing first integrals of motion which are polynomial in the momenta for natural Hamiltonian systems defined in a flat pseudo-Riemannian space of arbitrary
Quadratic first integrals of autonomous conservative dynamical systems
An autonomous dynamical system is described by a system of second order differential equations whose solution gives the trajectories of the system. The solution is facilitated by the use of first
Necessary condition for the existence of algebraic first integrals
Necessary condition for the existence of a sufficient number of algebraic first integrals is given for a class of dynamical systems. It is proved that in order that a given system is algebraically
A unified treatment of quartic invariants at fixed and arbitrary energy
Two-dimensional Hamiltonian systems admitting second invariants which are quartic in the momenta are investigated using the Jacobi geometrization of the dynamics. This approach allows for a unified
Superintegrable Systems with a Third Order Integrals of Motion
Two-dimensional superintegrable systems with one third order and one lower order integral of motion are reviewed. The fact that Hamiltonian systems with higher order integrals of motion are not the
First integrals of holonomic systems without Noether symmetries
A theorem is proved which determines the first integrals of the form I = Kab(t, q)q̇ q̇+Ka(t, q)q̇ +K(t, q) of autonomous holonomic systems using only the collineations of the kinetic metric which is
Unified treatment and classification of superintegrable systems with integrals quadratic in momenta on a two-dimensional manifold
In this paper we prove that the two-dimensional superintegrable systems with quadratic integrals of motion on a manifold can be classified by using the Poisson algebra of the integrals of motion.

Superintegrable n=2 systems, quadratic constants of motion, and potentials of Drach
The properties of superintegrable systems in two degrees of freedom, possessing three independent globally defined constants of motion, are studied using as an approach, the existence of hidden
Quadratic and cubic invariants in classical mechanics
This paper is a continuation of a previous paper (A. S. Fokas, J. Math. Anal. Appl. 68 (1979), 347–370). It first establishes an isomorphism between dynamical variables of Hamilton's equations and
