N2 - We show that the dynamical symmetry of the hydrogen atom leads in a natural way to the infinite-dimensional algebra, which we identify as the positive subalgebras of twisted Kac-Moody algebras of so(4) and so(3,1), which are isomorphic to each other over R. The relevant automorphism can be associated with parity.
