This thesis is concerned with an investigation of twistorial structures present in curved Lorentzian space-times.
Chapter 1 introduces the basic definitions and some theorems that will be used later in the text.
Chapter 2 investigates generalised connections that arise in twister theory. First the Cartan con-formal connection is studied, and some of the geometry underlying it is shown to be that used by Fefferman and Graham C133. Also a condition that a space-time is conformal...Expand abstract
