Abstract: An -orbifold is a topological space provided with a local modelling on (an open set in )/(a finite group action). Mainly, we deal with -branchfolds (i.e. -orbifolds with -dimensional singular locus). We define a map between two -branchfolds. With respect to this map, we prove some facts parallel to -manifold theorems. Using the facts, we classify a class of -branchfolds, analogous to Waldhausen's classification theorem of Haken manifolds.
