Extending patches to fullerenes

Christina M. Graves, Jennifer McLoud-Mann, Kristen Stagg Rovira


In this paper we consider fullerene patches that can be extended to pseudconvex patches. We show that all fullerene disks with three or fewer pentagons can be extended to pseudoconvex patches, and that all pseudoconvex patches can be extended to fullerenes.


Fullerenes, fullerene patches, boundary codes, pseudoconvex patches.
