The constant mean curvature surfaces in three-dimensional spaceforms are examples of isothermic constrained Willmore surfaces, characterized as the constrained Willmore surfaces in three-space admitting a conserved quantity. Both constrained Willmore spectral deformation and constrained Willmore Bäcklund transformation preserve the existence of a conserved quantity. The class of constant mean curvature surfaces in threedimensional space-forms lies, in this way, at the intersection of several integrable geometries, with classical transformations of its own, as well as constrained Willmore transformations and transformations as a class of isothermic surfaces. Constrained Willmore transformation is expected to be unifying to this rich transformation theory.
