The aim of this paper is to present two examples of non academic Hamiltonian systems for which the Morales-Ramis theory can be applied effectively. First, we investigate the Gross-Neveu system with n degrees of freedom. Till now it has been proved that this system is not integrable for n = 3. We give a simple proof that it is not completely integrable for an arbitrary n ≥ 3. Our second example is a natural generalisation of the Jacobi problem of a material point moving on an ellipsoid. We formulate sufficient conditions for its non-integrability.
