In this paper, we show that any two even triangulations on the same closed surface with the same and sufficiently large number of vertices can be transformed into each other by a sequence of two specifically defined deformations called an N-flip and a P2-flip, up to homeomorphism, if they have the same homological structure. © 2008 Elsevier Inc.
