Summary: We construct Ermanno-Bernoulli type invariants for the Manev model dynamics which may be viewed as remnants of the Laplace-Runge-Lenz vector in the Kepler model. If the orbits are bounded, these invariants exist only when a certain rationality condition is met, and thus we have superintegrability only on a subset of initial values. The dynamics of the Manev model is demonstrated to be bi-Hamiltonian and a recursion operator is constructed. We analyze the ‘real form dynamics’ of the Manev model and establish that it is always superintegrable. We also discuss the symmetry algebras of the Manev model and its real Hamiltonian form.
