The contributions in this volume summarize parts of a seminar on conformal geometry which was held at the Max-Planck-Institut fur Mathematik in Bonn during the academic year 1985/86. The intention of this seminar was to study conformal structures on mani folds from various viewpoints. The motivation to publish seminar notes grew out of the fact that in spite of the basic importance of this field to many topics of current interest (low-dimensional topology, analysis on manifolds . . . ) there seems to be no coherent introduction to conformal geometry in the literature. We have tried to make the material presented in this book self-contained, so it should be accessible to students with some background in differential geometry. Moreover, we hope that it will be useful as a reference and as a source of inspiration for further research. Ravi Kulkarni/Ulrich Pinkall Conformal Structures and Mobius Structures Ravi S.
