Abstract: 

A discrete conformality for hyperbolic cone metrics on surfaces is introduced. It is shown that each hyperbolic cone metric on a surface is discrete conformal to a unique hyperbolic cone metric with prescribed curvature. In particular, a discrete version of the uniformization theorem is obtained. Each hyperbolic cone metric on a surface with negative Euler characteristic is discrete conformal to a unique hyperbolic metric.
