MATH 347 Spring 2015 Origami (Q)

Origami is the art and study of folding and unfolding. Although ancient in origin, there has been a tremendous resurgence of interest recently, resulting in stunning sculptures and marvelously intricate pop-up books. The applications of origami have grown as well, from NASA's James Webb space telescope to cutting-edge protein folding models. This is a beautiful subject with a tremendous amount of active research, relating powerful ideas from studio art, computer science, and mathematics. This tutorial is designed to introduce the foundations of origami design from a mathematical viewpoint: 1D linkages, 2D crease patterns and cut-theorems, 3D unfolding polyhedra. No experience in paper folding is necessary.
