    We prove that Fefferman spaces, associated to non-degenerate CR structures of hypersurface type, are characterised, up to local conformal isometry, by the existence of a parallel orthogonal complex structure on the standard tractor bundle. This condition can be equivalently expressed in terms of...

It is shown that each superconformal structure has associated with it a distinguished vector bundle (or local supertwistor bundle) equipped with a superconnection that has to be regarded as a supersymmetric...
