Determination of all regular maps of small genus. (English) Zbl 1028.05045
Summary: Complete lists are given of all reflexible orientable regular maps of genus 2 to 15, all nonorientable regular maps of genus 4 to 30, and all (orientable) rotary but chiral (irreflexible) maps of genus 2 to 15 inclusive. On each list the maps are classified according to genus and type (viz. \(\{p, q\}\) where every face is incident with \(p\) edges and every vertex is incident with \(q\) edges). The complete lists were determined with the help of a parallel program which finds all normal subgroups of low index in a finitely-presented group.
