Triangulations, quadrangulations and dissections. A plane map is a connected graph embedded in the plane up to continuous deformation; the unique unbounded face of a plane map is called the outer face, the other ones are called inner faces.
On symmetric quadrangulations and triangulations
For k (cid:62) 1 and d (cid:62) 3, a d-angular dissection of a k-gon or d-angular k-dissection is a map whose outer face contour is a simple cycle of length k , and with all inner faces of one and the same degree d. A dissection is said to be triangular if d equals 3, quadrangular if d equals 4.
On symmetric quadrangulations and triangulations
Observe that quadrangular k -dissections can only exist for even k . A map is said to be simple if it has no multiple edges; a d-angular k -dissection is called irreducible if the interior of every cycle of length at most d is a face. 1.2.
On symmetric quadrangulations and triangulations
Hence there is a canonical way of plugging a rooted 2-dissection in the (rooted) 2-cycle obtained by opening the marked edge of a map in T − .

Herschlag, Dissecting eukaryotic translation and its control by ribosome density mapping, Nucl.
Template-directed biopolymerization: tape-copying Turing machines
Finally, inner-edge rooted dissections invariant under the fourth kind of mapping are composed out of two independently chosen non-empty reflective outer-edge rooted dissections, joined at the root-edge.
Enumeration of Unlabeled Outerplanar Graphs
For the reflections, the outer-edge rooted dissections attached to corresponding pairs of edges must be the same, while the outer-edge rooted dissection that is mapped to itself must be reflective.
Enumeration of Unlabeled Outerplanar Graphs
Cureton and Kuttler have used a numerical approach (which is essentially the Conformal Mapping Method of ), to obtain quite precise values for selected eigenvalues of regular polygons and of the figures obtained by the dissection.
