We discuss the theory of Carter's Constant introduced to give the fourth constant of motion for the motion of a particle in Kerr spacetime thereby making the equations of motion integrable. We then generalize the theorem to n-dimensions. We then explore various examples where the significance of Carter's constant will be realized. We also look at the implications of Carter Constant to Superintegrability.
