The SO(4,2) isometries of AdS_5 are realized non-linearly on its horospherical coordinates (x^m,\rho). On the other hand, Penrose twistors have long been known to linearly realize these symmetries on 4-dimensional Minkowski space, the boundary of AdS_5, parametrized by x^m. Here we extend the twistor construction and define a pair of twistors, allowing us to include a radial coordinate in the construction. The linear action of SO(4,2) on the twistors induces the correct isometries of AdS_5. Wedoi:10.1016/s0370-2693(99)01128-4 fatcat:y2m2j2o4zzfsja4h2ft4sctrme
