Let J(π) be the higher order Jacobi operator. We study algebraic curvature tensors where J(π)J(π^)=J(π^)J(π). In the Riemannian setting, we give a complete characterization of such tensors; in the pseudo-Riemannian setting, partial results are available. We present non-trivial geometric examples of Riemannian manifolds with this property.
