This chapter considers the formal theory for Poincaré metrics associated to a conformal manifold (M, [g]). It shows that even Poincaré metrics are in one-to-one correspondence with straight ambient metrics, if both are in normal form. Thus, the formal theory for Poincaré metrics is a consequence of the results of Chapter 3. The derivation of a Poincaré metric from an ambient metric was described in [FG], and the inverse construction of an ambient metric as the cone metric over a Poincaré metric was given in § 5 of [GrL].
