In science:

We deal here with d-angulations with a boundary.
A bijection for triangulations, quadrangulations, pentagulations, etc
We call p-gonal d-angulation a map having one marked face of degree p, called boundary face, whose contour is simple (its vertices are all distinct) and all the other faces of degree d.
A bijection for triangulations, quadrangulations, pentagulations, etc
We call p-annular d-angulation a face-rooted p-gonal d-angulation whose root-face is not the boundary face.
A bijection for triangulations, quadrangulations, pentagulations, etc
Our goal is to obtain a bijection for p-annular d-angulations of girth d by a method similar to the one of the previous section: we first exhibit a canonical orientation for these maps and then consider the restriction of the master bijection to the canonical orientations.
A bijection for triangulations, quadrangulations, pentagulations, etc
However, an additional difficulty arises: one needs to factorize p-annular d-angulations into two parts, one being a d-angulation of girth d (without boundary) and the other being a non-separated p-annular d-angulation of girth d (see definitions below).
