In mathematics and theoretical physics, two geometries are conformally equivalent if there exists a conformal transformation (an angle-preserving transformation) that maps one geometry to the other one. More generally, two Riemannian metrics on a manifold are conformally equivalent if one is obtained from the other by multiplication by a positive function on . Conformal equivalence is an equivalence relation on geometries or on Riemannian metrics.
