Computational conformal geometry is an emerging inter-disciplinary field, with applications to algebraic topology, differential geometry and Riemann surface theories applied to geometric modeling, computer graphics, computer vision, medical imaging, visualization, scientific computation, and many other engineering fields.This new volume presents thorough introductions to the theoretical foundations—as well as to the practical algorithms—of computational conformal geometry. These have direct applications to engineering and digital geometric processing, including surface parameterization, surface matching, brain mapping, 3-D face recognition and identification, facial expression and animation, dynamic face tracking, mesh-spline conversion, and more.

This is a very cool book for people that like the topic. I think it is very good that you read a lot. Especially if you read math, because math is so difficult, so it makes your brain go faster.
