Abstract

We prove that the geodesic flow of a pseudo-Riemannian metric $g$ that admits a "nontrivial" projective symmetry $X$ is completely integrable. Nontriviality condition of the projective symmetry is expressed in the terms of the invariants of the pair forms $g$ and $L_Xg$, where $L_X$ denotes the Lie derivative with respect to the vector field $X$. The theorem we propose can be considered as a "commutative" analog of the Noether theorem.
