Double cover

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In mathematics, a double cover or double covering may refer to:

  • Double cover (topology), a two-to-one mapping from one topological space to another. Frequently occurring special cases include
    • The orientable double cover of a non-orientable manifold
    • The bipartite double cover of an undirected graph G, formed by the graph tensor product G ×K2
    • A double covering group of a topological group such as a Lie group, a group extension of index two formed by a topological double cover. A double cover may also be used to refer to non-topological group extensions of index two, for instance extensions of finite groups.
  • Cycle double cover, a collection of cycles in a graph that together include each edge twice. The cycle double cover conjecture is the unproven assertion that every bridgeless graph has a cycle double cover.

Double coverage may also refer to:
