Abstract

It is shown that the dynamical systems describing a point mass moving in a repulsive inverse square potential in a plane and a free relativistic massless particle are isomorphic to each other. The obvious conformal invariance of the massless particle appears as a hidden dynamical symmetry of the inverse square potential.
