Twistor theory goes back to the 1960s, where twistor methods were introduced by R. Penrose to provide an approach to quantum gravity. The general idea is to translate a problem on a differentiable manifold M endowed with a certain geometric structure to a problem on a complex manifold Z, the twistor space. The purpose of this work is to transfer some of these methods to paracomplex geometry.
