Title:The S0(4) Symmetry of the Kepler Problem - a simple proof
Seminar:Symplectic Topology Seminar
Speaker:Alain Albouy, Observatoire de Paris, CNRS
This SO(4) symmetry is called the hidden symmetry of the Kepler problem. There is a certain confusion in the literature about it. An excellent reference is A characterization of the Ligon-Schaaf regularization map RH Cushman, JJ Duistermaat - Communications on Pure and Applied Mathematics, 1997 (actually this map was discovered by Bacry and Gyorgyi before Ligon and Schaaf). Here we will present a simpler proof of the existence of this symmetry.
