@JackSchmidt to be honest I wasn't sure why that was listed on wikipedia. How could a classification be anything other than cases?

@ArturoMagidin also thank you for fixing the tags; I wasn't really sure what to do with them.

@Arturo Magidin Right. That is a better way of looking at it. I guess what I'm asking, for this specific case, is if we can put a bound on the number of those graphs? Or perhaps a theorem telling us why there are so many? Perhaps I should revise my question.

comment How formal or informal should math texts (written for different purposes) be?
From a student's perspective, that second line makes me want to go read something else, even if I understand what it's saying.

comment Closed curves on the discrete torus
Is this graph even toroidal (embeddable on the torus)? It doesn't appear to be so. It's quite pretty, though.
