The author gives an introduction into some problems of the “polyhedral differential geometry” based on polyhedral metrics on surfaces in accordance with the article by the author and I. R. Aitchinson [Proc. Symp., Durham/UK 1989, Lond. Math. Soc. Lect. Note Ser. 151, 127–161 (1990; Zbl 0735.57005)].
