Abstract: Given a transversely projective foliation on a manifold and a nonnegative integer , a transversal differential operator of order from to is constructed, where denotes the normal bundle for the foliation. There is a natural homomorphism from the space of all infinitesimal deformations of the transversely projective foliation to the first cohomology of the locally constant sheaf over defined by the kernel of the operator . On the other hand, from this first cohomology there is a homomorphism to the first cohomology of the sheaf of holomorphic sections of . The composition of these two homomorphisms coincide with the infinitesimal version of the forgetful map that sends a transversely projective foliation to the underlying transversely holomorphic foliation.
