Rational Integrability of Trigonometric Polynomial Potentials on the Flat Torus
2017, vol. 22, no. 4, pp.  386-407
We consider a lattice $\mathcal{L}\subset \mathbb{R}^n$ and a trigonometric potential $V$ with frequencies $k\in\mathcal{L}$. We then prove a strong rational integrability condition on $V$, using the support of its Fourier transform. We then use this condition to prove that a real trigonometric polynomial potential is rationally integrable if and only if it separates up to rotation of the coordinates. Removing the real condition, we also make a classification of rationally integrable potentials in dimension 2 and 3, and recover several integrable cases. These potentials after a complex variable change become real, and correspond to generalized Toda integrable potentials. Moreover, along the proof, some of them with high degree first integrals are explicitly integrated.

Non-integrability of a Self-gravitating Riemann Liquid Ellipsoid
2013, vol. 18, no. 5, pp.  497-507
We consider the motion of a triaxial Riemann ellipsoid of a homogeneous liquid without angular momentum. We prove that it does not admit an additional first integral which is meromorphic in position, impulsions, and elliptic integrals which appear in the potential. This proves that the system is not integrable in the Liouville sense; we actually show that even its restriction to a fixed energy hypersurface is not integrable.
