We define Killing tensors and conformal Killing tensors of arbitrary rank and order which generalize in a natural way the notion of a Killing vector. We explicitly derive the corresponding tensors for a flat de Sitter space of dimension p+q=m,m≤ 4, which permits us to calculate complete sets of symmetry operators of arbitrary order n for a scalar wave equation with m independent parameters.
