Using combinatorial Ricci flow methods, we shall prove the following theorem: Let M be a compact 3-manifold with boundary consisting of surfaces of genus at least 2. If M admits an ideal triangulation with valence at least 10 at all edges, then there exists a unique hyperbolic metric on M with totally geodesic boundary under which the ideal triangulation is geometric. This is based on joint work with Ke Feng and Bobo Hua.
