This paper, despite being a short paper in CRAS, contains a rather strong result: the differential Galois group of the variational equation of any order along a solution of an analytic integrable dynamical system is virtually Abelian. Our result extends the theorem of Morales-Ramis-Simo to the non-Hamiltonian case, and its proof is also based on Morales-Ramis-Simo’ theorem. It also shows that the Hamiltonian condition (and arguments based on it) of Morales-Ramis-Simo theorem are in fact superfluous, and one could write a proof from scratch without any “Hamiltonian” word in it. Since Morales-Ramis-Simo already laid out the foundations, instead of writing such a proof, we simply used their result, and a Hamiltonian – nonHamiltonian correspondence to prove our theorem. Michael Ayoul was a student of mine, and this probelm was his PhD project.
