4.6 The Classification Theorem In this subsection we state the Classification Theorem for surfaces, which classifies a surface in terms of its boundary number β, its orientability number ω and its Euler characteristic χ, each of which is a topological invariant – it is preserved under homeomorphisms. Let us remind ourselves of these three numbers. A surface may or may not have a boundary, and, if it does, then the boundary has finitely many disjoint pieces. The nu
