Title: Variational principles and rigidity theorems on triangulated surfaces
Abstract: We use recently found variational principles to establish several rigidity theorems for polyhedral surfaces. These include a solution to the Bowers-Stephenson's rigidity conjecture for inversive distance circle packing and that the discrete Laplacian operator determines Euclidean and spherical polyhedral surfaces.
