The notion of discrete conformal equivalence for polyhedral surfaces is based on a simple definition:
Two polyhedral surfaces are discretely conformally equivalent if the edge lengths are related by scale factors assigned to the vertices. It leads to a surprisingly rich theory.
The notion of discrete conformal equivalence is extended from triangulated surfaces to polyhedral surfaces with faces that are inscribed in circles.
