A conformal transformation is a diffeomorphism that preserves a conformal structure (a conformal map). The group of conformal transformations is the conformal group.
A bijective conformal transformation of the Riemann sphere (to itself) is also called a Möbius transformation.
For $p + q \geq 3$ then the group of conformal transformations of $\mathbb{R}^{p,q}$ is $\simeq O(p+1,q+1)$
