Face-Spiral Codes in Cubic Polyhedral Graphs with Face Sizes no Larger Than 6

Fowler, Patrick W.; Jooyandeh, Mohammadreza; Brinkmann, Gunnar


According to the face-spiral conjecture, first made in connection with enumeration of fullerenes, a cubic polyhedron can be reconstructed from a face sequence starting from the first face and adding faces sequentially in spiral fashion. This conjecture is known to be false, both for general cubic polyhedra and within the specific class of fullerenes. Here we report counterexamples to the spiral conjecture within the 19 classes of cubic polyhedra with positive curvature, i. e., with no face size...[Show more]
