PolyhedronGenus

PolyhedronGenus[poly]

gives the genus of the polyhedron poly.

Details

  • PolyhedronGenus is also known as genus.
  • PolyhedronGenus gives the maximum number of cuttings along non-intersecting closed simple curves on the surface of the polyhedron without disconnecting the polyhedron.
