Origametry : Mathematical Methods in Paper Folding, Paperback / softback Book

Origametry : Mathematical Methods in Paper Folding Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


Origami, the art of paper folding, has a rich mathematical theory.

Early investigations go back to at least the 1930s, but the twenty-first century has seen a remarkable blossoming of the mathematics of folding.

Besides its use in describing origami and designing new models, it is also finding real-world applications from building nano-scale robots to deploying large solar arrays in space.

Written by a world expert on the subject, Origametry is the first complete reference on the mathematics of origami.

It brings together historical results, modern developments, and future directions into a cohesive whole.

Over 180 figures illustrate the constructions described while numerous 'diversions' provide jumping-off points for readers to deepen their understanding.

This book is an essential reference for researchers of origami mathematics and its applications in physics, engineering, and design.

Educators, students, and enthusiasts will also find much to enjoy in this fascinating account of the mathematics of folding.
