Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics.

Abstract

Biggs stated that the Coxeter graph can be embedded in an orientable surface of genus 3. The purpose of this note is to point out that Biggs' embedding is in fact into a non-orientable surface. Further, it is shown that the orientable genus is 3 and the non-orientable genus is 6.
