Symbols used in these pages

Thes pages use various symbols to indicate properties of regular maps in a way that takes up little space. Here we explain what these symbols mean.

Links to pages about regular maps look like {4,4}(2,1). Links to pages about not-quite-regular maps look like C5:{10,4}.

A polyhedral mapB97 is such that the valency of each vertex exceeds 2, and the intersection of two distinct faces is one of

Thus for example {4,4}(2,1) is not a polyhedral map: the intersection of two of its distinct faces is an edge and a vertex.
