In Combinatorial Topology, manifolds are described by a certain class of simplicial complexes called combinatorial manifolds. This talk will be about combinatorial manifolds which, in addition, have a cyclic symmetry group. These combinatorial manifolds allow a very efficient description in terms of orbit representatives under the cyclic group action, so-called difference cycles. This description is used to introduce several combinatorial criteria to decide, whether a combinatorial manifold with cyclic symmetry can be generalized to an infinite family of such objects increasing the prospects to work with easy to handle combinatorial manifolds.
