A central theme in Iachello's quest for understanding simple ordered patterns in complex quantum systems, is the concept of dynamical symmetry. Relying on his seminal contributions, we present further generalization of this notion to that of partial dynamical symmetry (PDS), for which solvability and good quantum numbers are maintained by only a subset of states. Hamiltonians with a single PDS and multiple PDSs are constructed explicitly and their relevance to nuclear structure is discussed.
