Graduate Pizza Seminar

Origametry

Corrine Yap: Rutgers University

Location:  Hill Grad Student Lounge
Date & time: Friday, 24 February 2017 at 1:40PM - 1:41PM

The art of paper-folding extends far beyond paper cranes; indeed, working with infinite paper allows us to analyze crease patterns as line configurations and gives us tools to tackle classical geometric constructions. We will work out some of these constructions and find out if origami is more powerful than our old friends, the straightedge and compass (spoiler: it is). For those who want to get their hands dirty, finite paper will be provided.
