Petersen graph

Task number: 4095

Find the drawing of the Petersen graph on the projective plane and on the torus.

  • Solution

    For the projective plane it is possible to draw as usual, only instead of crossing in the middle we use a cross-cap. A drawing with the cross-cap and also a drawing after the circular inversion are shown on the left and in the middle.

    The drawing on the torus is shown on the right.
