Irreducible Triangulations of Low Genus Surfaces

  title={Irreducible Triangulations of Low Genus Surfaces},
  author={Thom Sulanke},
The complete sets of irreducible triangulations are known for the orientable surfaces with genus of 0, 1, or 2 and for the nonorientable surfaces with genus of 1, 2, 3, or 4. By examining these sets we determine some of the properties of these irreducible triangulations.
