What does "super-integrable" mean?

Example from here (p. 2):

…the Coulomb problem is super-integrable. Namely, it is not just rotation invariant, but as well admits further integrals given by the Runge-Lenz vector.

Does it mean the differential equation has multiple symmetries and can thus be integrated more than one way?

  • $\begingroup$ See wikipedia. If you like slides, then this one is good, about Superintegrability. $\endgroup$ – Dietrich Burde Feb 27 at 18:21
  • $\begingroup$ Considering that the tag (differential-equations) has been removed relatively recently, I think that a better option would be to choose one of the more specific tags - (ode) or (pde). (Or both, if they are applicable to the question.) $\endgroup$ – Martin Sleziak Feb 28 at 11:49
