I Conformal geometry vs. projective geometry

  1. Aug 31, 2016 #1
    How are those two geometries realeted?

    Conformal geometry is a metric geometry. Projective geometry is not. But the stereographic projection is related to the conformal geometry.

    Or does someone know a book/ notes where the individual geometries (affine, projective, euclidean, hyperbolic, conformal) are listed and the relationships among them is (neatly and well) explained?
