Abstract

For a given group G the orientably regular maps with orientation-preserving automorphism group G are used as the vertices of a graph O(G), with undirected and directed edges showing the effect of duality and hole operations on these maps. Some examples of these graphs are given, including several for small Hurwitz groups. For some G, such as the affine groups AGL1(2e), the graph O(G) is connected, whereas for some other infinite families, such as the alternating and symmetric groups, the number of connected components is unbounded.
