 Positive and negative Euler characteristic (Geometry and the Imagination)  Conway, Doyle, Gilman, Thurston; The Geometry Center
A symmetry pattern on the sphere always gives rise to a quotient orbifold with positive Euler characteristic. In fact, if the order of symmetry is k, then the Euler characteristic of the quotient orbifold is 2/k, since the Euler characteristic of the

 Taxicab Angles and Trigonometry  Thompson, Dray
Taxicab geometry is essentially the study of an ideal city with all roads
running horizontal or vertical. The roads must be used to get from point A to point B; thus, the normal Euclidean distance function in the plane needs to be modified. Article abstract:
