Abstract

We enumerate all possible trades which involve up to six faces of the face set of a triangular embedding of a simple connected graph. These are classified by the underlying combinatorial trade on the associated block design, and by the geometrical arrangement of the faces necessary to avoid creation of a pseudosurface in the trading operation. The relationship of each of these trades to surface orientability is also established.
