Related to conformal: conformal projection, Conformal map


1. Mathematics Designating or specifying a mapping of a surface or region upon another surface so that all angles between intersecting curves remain unchanged.
2. Of or relating to a map projection in which small areas are rendered with true shape.

[Late Latin cōnfōrmālis, similar : Latin com-, com- + Latin fōrma, shape.]


1. (Mathematics) maths
a. (of a transformation) preserving the angles of the depicted surface
b. (of a parameter) relating to such a transformation
2. (Physical Geography) Also called: orthomorphic (of a map projection) maintaining true shape over a small area and scale in every direction
[C17: from Late Latin conformālis having the same shape, from Latin com- same + forma shape]


(kənˈfɔr məl)

of or designating a map or transformation in which angles and scale are preserved.

This type of a conformal lens, which is also known as a Mikaelian lens, arose from the field of transformation optics, which is based on the idea that lenses can direct light in analogy with how the curved geometry of spacetime bends light in general relativity.
ABSTRACT: This paper introduces the use of Noether symmetry equation for Lagrangian of conformal plane symmetric static Minkowski spacetime to find all those Minkowski spacetimes which admit the conformal factor.
Dymax Corporation has introduced Multi-Cure 9482-FC, a new conformal coating formulated with a revolutionary new technology as an alternative to thin, solvent-based conformal coatings.
In particular, by using the correspondence between the de Sitter symmetry group in D-dimensions and the conformal group in an euclidean (D-1)-dimensional "boundary" space (Strominger, 2001), it is possible to calculate general important features of the system, such as the correlations functions of the fields that govern the dynamics of the inflationary Universe (Biagetti et al.
