Conformal isoparametric hypersurfaces with two distinct conformal principal curvatures in conformal space



The conformal geometry of regular hypersurfaces in the conformal space is studied. We classify all the conformal isoparametric hypersurfaces with two distinct conformal principal curvatures in the conformal space up to conformal equivalence.
