I was glancing through

https://arxiv.org/abs/1605.07458

I don't fully get why scale invariance kicks in below a certain acceleration. Is this because the centripetal force becomes constant? I do see that Newton's second law with the centripetal force included is scale invariant. This symmetry reminds me about the Galilean Conformal Algebra (as opposed to the Schrödinger algebra). Is there any relation between this GCA and MOND?
