The EulerNumber of a surface is an integer with this properties:
Therefore, in order to prove that the results of computing the EulerNumber for different divisions yield equal results, it is suffice to prove this for the case in which one division is a refinement of the other.
The fact that the EulerNumbers of the Torus and the Sphere are not equal shows that these objects are not topologically equivalent.
