The present work is the first one of two papers, in which we analyse
systems of higher order variational equations associated to natural
Hamiltonian systems with homogeneous potential of degree
$k\in\mathbb{Z}\setminus \{-1,0,1\}$. Our attempt is to give
necessary conditions for complete integrability which can be deduced
in a framework of differential Galois theory. We show that the
higher variational equations $\mathrm{VE}_p$ of order $p\geq 2$,
although complicated, have a very particular algebraic structure.
More precisely, we show that if $\mathrm{VE}_1$ has virtually
Abelian differential Galois group (DGG), then $\mathrm{VE}_{p}$
are solvable for an arbitrary $p>1$. We proved this inductively using
what we call the

*second level integrals*. Then we formulate the necessary and sufficient conditions in terms of these second level integrals for $\mathrm{VE}_{p}$ to be virtually Abelian. We apply the above conditions to potentials of degree $k=\pm 2$ considering their $\mathrm{VE}_p$ with $p>1$ along Darboux points. For $k= 2$, $\mathrm{VE}_1$ does not give any obstruction to the integrability. We show that under certain non-resonance condition, the only degree two integrable potential is the*multidimensional harmonic oscillator*. In contrast, for degree $k=-2$ potentials, all the $\mathrm{VE}_{p}$ along Darboux points are virtually Abelian.

In our previous paper [4], we tried to extract some particular
structures of the higher variational equations (the $\mathrm{VE}_p$ for $p
\geq 2$), along particular solutions of natural Hamiltonian systems with
homogeneous potential of degree $k=\pm 2$. We investigate these variational
equations in a framework of differential Galois theory. Our aim was to obtain
new obstructions for complete integrability. In this paper we extend
results of [4] to the complementary cases, when the homogeneous
potential has integer degree of homogeneity $k\in\mathbb{Z}$, and $|k| \geq 3$.
Since these cases are much more general and complicated, we restrict our
study only to the second order variational equation $\mathrm{VE}_2$.
