A classically conformal theory is a theory which, when placed on a surface with arbitrary background metric, has an action that is invariant under … Wikipedia**Conformal geometry**— In mathematics, conformal geometry is the study of the set of angle preserving (conformal) transformations on a space. In two real dimensions, conformal geometry is precisely the geometry of Riemann surfaces. In more than two dimensions,… … Wikipedia**Conformal map**— For other uses, see Conformal (disambiguation). A rectangular grid (top) and its image under a conformal map f (bottom). It is seen that f maps pairs of lines intersecting at 90° to pairs of curves still intersecting at 90°. In mathematics, a… … Wikipedia**Conformal field theory**— A conformal field theory (CFT) is a quantum field theory (or statistical mechanics model at the critical point) that is invariant under conformal transformations. Conformal field theory is often studied in two dimensions where there is an… … Wikipedia**Conformal symmetry**— In theoretical physics, conformal symmetry is a symmetry under dilatation (scale invariance) and under the special conformal transformations.
