We present a method for automatic surface comparison and alignment based on principles from conformal geometry and optimal mass transportation. One application of the method is efficient calculation of point correspondences between surfaces. Another application is a novel distance definition between disc-type surfaces which forms a tractable alternative to the Gromov-Hausdorff distance.

Joint work with I. Daubechies and T. Funkhouser.
