Abstract

This paper locally classifies finite-dimensional Lie algebras of conformal and Killing vector fields on $\mathbb{R}^2$ relative to an arbitrary pseudo-Riemannian metric. Several results about their geometric properties are detailed, e.g. their invariant distributions and induced symplectic structures. Findings are illustrated with two examples of physical nature: the Milne–Pinney equation and the projective Schrödinger equation on the Riemann sphere.
