  • This paper gives a detailed introduction to the orbifold notation for two-dimensional (2-D) symmetry groups. It discusses the correspondence between properties of orbifolds and symmetries in the original surface. The problem of determining a group in situ is addressed. Elementary proofs of the classification of the Euclidean and spherical 2-D symmetry groups are presented.
