Algorithmic Puzzle Design
Origami not only looks beautiful but also has important real-life applications – from solar panels in space to stents in your blood vessels. In this talk, we’ll explore Origami axioms, impossible constructions, unsolved problems in polygon folding, current research into folding algorithms and protein folding, and more. We will also discuss how Origami can be used in education: to get more students excited about mathematics and make abstract concepts more accessible.
