Connections between circle packings and analytic functions were first suggested by William Thurston [T2], who conjectured that the conformai mapping of a simply connected plane domain Q to the unit disc A could be approximated by manipulating hexagonal circle configurations lying in Q. The conjecture was confirmed by Rodin and Sullivan [RS]. Their proof… CONTINUE READING
