What do proteins and pop-up cards have in common? How is opening a grocery bag different from opening a gift box? How can you cut out the letters for a whole word all at once with one straight scissors cut? How many ways are there to flatten a cube? With the help of 200 colour figures, author Joseph O'Rourke explains these fascinating folding problems starting from high school algebra and geometry and introducing more advanced concepts in tangible contexts as they arise. He shows how variations on these basic problems lead directly to the frontiers of current mathematical research and offers ten accessible unsolved problems for the enterprising reader. Before tackling these, you can test your skills on fifty exercises with complete solutions. The book's website,, has dynamic animations of many of the foldings and downloadable templates for readers to fold or cut out.
Lavishly illustrated and entertaining account of the surprising and useful results of the maths of folding and unfolding.
Project Origami: Activities for Exploring Mathematics, Second Edition presents a flexible, discovery-based approach to learning origami-math topics. It helps readers see how origami intersects a variety of mathematical topics, from the more obvious realm of geometry to the fields of algebra, number theory, and combinatorics. With over 100 new pages, this updated and expanded edition now includes 30 activities and offers better solutions and teaching tips for all activities. The book contains detailed plans for 30 hands-on, scalable origami activities. Each activity lists courses in which the activity might fit, includes handouts for classroom use, and provides notes for instructors on solutions, how the handouts can be used, and other pedagogical suggestions. The handouts are also available on the book’s CRC Press web page. Reflecting feedback from teachers and students who have used the book, this classroom-tested text provides an easy and entertaining way for teachers to incorporate origami into a range of college and advanced high school math courses.

This book constitutes the thoroughly refereed conference proceedings of the 9th International Workshop on Algorithms and Computation, WALCOM 2015, held in Dhaka, Bangladesh, in February 2015. The 26 revised full papers presented together with 3 invited talks were carefully reviewed and selected from 85 submissions. The papers are organized in topical sections on approximation algorithms, data structures and algorithms, computational geometry, combinatorial algorithms, distributed and online algorithms, graph drawing and algorithms, combinatorial problems and complexity, and graph enumeration and algorithms.
This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 12th Annual Conference on Theory and Applications of Models of Computation, TAMC 2014, held in Singapore, in May 2015. The 35 revised full papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected from 78 submissions. The papers treat all topics relating to the theory and applications of models computation, for example recursion theory and mathematical logic; computational complexity and Boolean functions; graphy theory; quantum computing; parallelism and statistics; learning, automata and probabilistic models; parameterised complexity.
Mit Unfolded – Papier in Design, Kunst, Architektur und Industrie erobert Papier die dritte Dimension und zeigt, welche ungeahnten Möglichkeiten Papier heute für Leichtbau, Produktdesign, Mode und Kunst bietet. Von der Taschenkollektion „Papier“ eines Stefan Diez, über Konstantin Grcics Papiermodelle bis hin zu den duftigen Papierkleidern aus der Feder von Issey Miyake, präsentiert dieses Buch Papier als wertvollen, ökologischen und zeitgemäßen Werkstoff. Mit der enorm großen Auswahl an Projekten, der aufwendigen drucktechnischen Ausstattung und den zahlreichen Abbildungen liefert es Gestaltern wertvolle Inspirationen für ihre Arbeit. Als inhaltliches Fundament des Buches dient ein umfassendes Verzeichnis technischer Papiere und innovativer Papiertechnologien, das die Gestalter bei ihrer täglichen Arbeit mit Fachinformationen zum „Hightech“-Werkstoff Papier unterstützen soll. Von japanischem Washi-Papier über Papierschaum, bis hin zu Keramik- und Karbonfaserpapier präsentiert es den aktuellen Stand aus Forschung und Entwicklung sowie die wichtigsten Verfahrenstechniken aus Handwerk und Industrie.
