The existence of a symmetry of the Dirac equation for a massless particle in a scalar field is demonstrated, and its effect on the band structure of certain arrays of scalar {delta}-function potentials is investigated. The implications of the symmetry for more general scalar potentials are also discussed. 10 refs.
