Example text

There is no reasonable hope of applying this kind of algorithm to the enumeration of ({a, b}, k)-spheres because there is no simple operation such as the O pi that would preserve the property of being a ({a, b}, k)-sphere and generate them all. All computations used the GAP computer algebra system [GAP02] and the package PlanGraph ([Dut02]) by the second author; the programs are available from [Du07]. The program CaGe ([BDDH97]) was used for most of the graph drawings. 3 Fullerenes as tilings of surfaces The discovery of the fullerene molecules and related forms of carbon, such as nanotubes, has generated an explosion of activity in chemistry, physics, and materials science, which is amply documented, for example, in [DDE96] and [FoMa95].

4 in [Sah94] (which is an application of a preliminary version of [Thu98]) implied that the number of ({3, 6}, 3)-, ({4, 6}, 3)-, ({5, 6}, 3)spheres with v vertices grows as O(v), O(v 3 ), O(v 9 ). We believe that the hypothesis on degree of vertices (in dual terms, that the graph has no b-gonal faces with b > 6) in [Thu98] is unnecessary to his theory of parameter space. Also, his theory can be extended, perhaps, to the case of quadrangulations instead of triangulations. The graphs, that can be described in terms of Goldberg–Coxeter construction, can be thought of as those expressed in terms of one complex parameter.

In Virology, the number t(k, l) = k 2 + kl + l 2 (used for icosahedral fullerenes) is called triangulation number. In terms of Buckminster Fuller, the number k + l is called frequency, the case l = 0 is called Alternate, and the case l = k is called Two-faced maps 29 Triacon. He also called the Goldberg–Coxeter construction Breakdown of the initial plane graph G 0 . The root lattice A2 is defined by A2 = {x ∈ Z3 : x0 + x1 + x2 = 0}. The square lattice is denoted by Z2 . √ 2π The ring Z[ω], where ω = e 6 i = 12 (1 + i 3), of Eisenstein integers consists of the complex numbers z = k + lω with k, l ∈ Z.
