Construction of planar triangulations with minimum degree 5

Brinkmann, Gunnar; McKay, Brendan


In this article, we describe a method of constructing all simple triangulations of the sphere with minimum degree 5; equivalently, 3-connected planar cubic graphs with girth 5. We also present the results of a computer program based on this algorithm, including counts of convex polytopes of minimum degree 5.
