# Assignment 4 [Written]: Conformal Parameterization (Due 4/28)

The written part of your next assignment, on conformal surface flattening, is now available below. Conformal flattening is important for (among other things) making the connection between processing of 3D surfaces, and existing fast algorithms for 2D image processing. You’ll have the opportunity to implement one of these algorithms in the coding part of the assignment.

For exercise 7.11, “Let M be a topological disk and let $\varphi : M \rightarrow \mathbb{C}$ … with zero imaginary part, i.e. $Im(z) = 0$”. What is $z$? Is $z$ a point in the image of $\varphi$?

$z$ is generic here. It is just asking you to show that the output of applying the map has no imaginary component.
