## Abstract

The Pinney equation is part of the original Ermakov system which has been the subject of intensive study recently. Here we show that it may be related to a two-dimensional conformal Riccati equation leading to a new method for its linearization. A discrete analogue of the Pinney equation is constructed using the above connection with the conformal group. An alternative discretization is obtained by using a discrete Schwarz derivative. Both of these nonlinear difference equations are linearizable.
