A note on the existence of $\mathbf{\{k, k\}}$equivelar polyhedral mapsBasudeb DattaDepartment of Mathematics, Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore 560\,012, India; email: dattab@math.iisc.ernet.inAbstract: A polyhedral map is called $\{p,q\}$equivelar if each face has $p$ edges and each vertex belongs to $q$ faces. In \cite{msw2}, it was shown that there exist infinitely many geometrically realizable $\{p, q\}$equivelar polyhedral maps if $q > p = 4$, $p > q = 4$ or $q3>p =3$. It was shown in \cite{dn1} that there exist infinitely many $\{4, 4\}$ and $\{3, 6\}$equivelar polyhedral maps. In \cite{b}, it was shown that $\{5, 5\}$ and $\{6, 6\}$equivelar polyhedral maps exist. In this note, examples are constructed, to show that infinitely many self dual $\{k, k\}$equivelar polyhedral maps exist for each $k \geq 5$. Also vertexminimal nonsingular $\{p,p\}$pattern are constructed for all odd primes $p$. Keywords: polyhedral maps, equivelar maps, nonsingular patterns Classification (MSC2000): 52B70, 51M20, 57M20 Full text of the article:
