Abstract. For a non-relativistic scale invariant system in two spatial dimensions, the quantum scattering amplitude f(θ) is given as a dispersion relation, with a simple closed form for Im f(θ) as well as the integrated cross-section σ ∝ Im f(θ = 0). For fixed θ ≠ 0, the ℏ → 0 classical limit is straightforward to obtain.
