We study the non-relativistic Coulomb problem on a cone. The non-trivial topology of the cone breaks the symmetry associated with the conservation of the Lagrange-Laplace Runge-Lenz vector. Classically this translates into a precession of the orbits, and quantum-mechanically into a splitting of the energy levels. For the scattering problem we find that classical multi-scattering is possible and that it gives rise to a wake structure; we also evaluate the full quantum wave function and from it recover the classical results.
