Description: A library of discrete conformal maps as discrete integrable systems. A discrete conformal map is a map z : z^2 -> p^1 with the property that the cross-ratio of four adjacent points is constant... Illustrations show how a Riemann surface arises, considering the map as a discrete conformal flow of a discrete curve. From the Center for Geometry Analysis Numerics and Graphics.
