PlanarFaceList

PlanarFaceList[g]

gives the list of faces of the planar graph g.

Details

  • PlanarFaceList is also known as faces or regions.
  • PlanarFaceList is typically used to give vertices of the dual of a planar graph.
  • PlanarFaceList[g] gives a list of faces {f1,f2,} of the graph g, where the face fi={vi1,vi2,} is bounded by vertices vij and edges between them.
