This paper considers the problems associated with processing planar (two-dimensional) representations of three-dimensional structures. To overcome the ambiguity of such representations, a new ring set is defined in terms of simple faces and cut faces. The concept of a cut-vertex graph is introduced to explain the combinatorial relationship between the number of simple faces and the number of planar embedments.}, }
