http://theory.lcs.mit.edu/~edemaine/folding/

Extractions: Folding and unfolding is an exciting area of geometry. It is attractive in the way that problems and even results can be easily understood, with little knowledge of mathematics or computer science, yet the solutions are difficult and involve many sophisticated techniques. The general sort of problem considered is how a particular object (e.g., linkage, piece of paper, polyhedron, or protein) can be reconfigured or folded according to a few constraints, which depend on the object being folded and the problem of interest. In particular, we are interested in efficient algorithms for characterizing foldability, and finding efficient folding processes, or in proving that such algorithms are impossible. There is a wide range of folding and unfolding problems, some going back several centuries and still unsolved, like unfolding convex polyhedra, while others are more recent like protein folding. In the last few years, there has been tremendous progress on many of the fundamental problems in folding and unfolding, yet some of the most important questions still remain open. This leaves the area in an exciting state. Many results in folding and unfolding can be characterized in the following way. My favorite type of results are

3. Wrapping Polyhedra (Erik Demaine)

http://theory.lcs.mit.edu/~edemaine/wrapping/

Extractions: Given a shape, what is the most efficient way to wrap it with a piece of paper? The shape might be a flat polygon, and the goal is to fold that silhouette, or the shape might be the surface of a three-dimensional polyhedron. A wrapping is any folding of the piece of paper (without ripping or stretching) into precisely the desired shape. The folding is allowed to cover the shape with multiple layers of paper, but no paper can be strictly inside or outside the shape. Another twist on the problem is that the paper may be colored differently on its two sides. For example, wrapping paper typically has a patterned side and a white side, and kami (common origami paper) typically has a colored side and a white side. If you are wrapping a gift, you probably want only the patterened side of the paper showing. If you are folding origami, say out of paper that is black on one side and white on the other, you might want to use the two colors to produce a particular effect of colors showing at different places in the shape. For example, it is possible to fold a single square of paper into a black-and-white checkerboard or a zebra with its stripes.

On Saturday, March 30, families can explore the Japanese craft of paper folding, known as origami. Why origami at the National Building Museum? Because origami allows people to explore the basic design of all forms, including those found in architecture and the landscape. History of Origami The art of paper folding originated in China but was elevated into an artform by the Japanese after it was brought to that country in the sixth century. The Japanese coined the term origami ( ori means "to fold" and kami means "paper"). In the eighth to twelfth centuries, because paper was such an expensive commodity, origami was practiced and used only by the Japanese nobility. They exchanged origami creations as good luck tokens and used them at wedding ceremonies to wrap sake (rice wine) bottles with paper butterflies representing the bride and groom. By the 1500s when paper became more affordable, origami was practiced by all Japanese and was used as a means of identifying ones social status. Aristocrats folded differently from farmers and peasants. People knew their position and folded accordingly. In the 1600s-1800s, one of the high periods of Japanese art and culture, origami emerged into a true artform. Japanese publications of this period document the creation of basic origami forms that we know today.

There is more to origami than these simple models would lead us to believe. Origami comes from the Japanese words for folding, ori, and the Japanese word for paper, kami. Since about the first century AD, the time when it is believed that paper was first invented in China, people have been folding paper into various shapes. The Chinese developed some simple forms, some of which survive down to this day. When the secret of paper was carried to Japan in the sixth century AD by Buddhist monks, it was quickly integrated into their culture.

9. From The Origami-l Archives - David Lister On Folding From Non-square Paper
The accepted constraint in origami has always been that the paper should be a To summarise,the square has become the classical shape of paper for folding.
http://www.worthhall.demon.co.uk/theory/lister/nosquare.htm

Extractions: I thought I would set down a few random thoughts on folding from non-square as opposed to square paper, but I don't intend it to be a reasoned thesis! 1.A few months ago, I wrote in Origami-L about John Smith's ideas on "Origami Profiles" which analyses how each individual's preferences in folding fit into the general scheme of things. The theory accepts that everyone is entitles to adopt whatever rules for folding he or she chooses. 2. Following from this a folder can choose to fold from a square or from a triangle or from A4 or a pentagon or a rectangle or a rhombus or a long ribbon of paper half and inch wide and ten yards long. He may even prefer silk ribbon or even string. Whether other people would include in their own concepts of Origami is another thing. 3. If you accept that cutting is legitimate (and cutting, too, fits into John Smith's Profiles of Origami), your can convert a square of paper into any shape you like. Or you can trim your dollar bill into a square. Or you can chop off any of those surplus bits of paper that get in the way. (No, I accept that most people who like to use scissors don't look at it in this extreme way, but I assert the possibility.) 4. Without even using scissors, you can convert most simple shapes of paper into most other shapes by folding alone. You can fold a square to make a triangle, or a hexagon or a 3 X 7 rectangle, even A4. So having done that, in theory, you can go on to fold anything that can be folded from a square equally from a Dollar bill or anything that can be folded from a Dollar bill from a square. I write "in theory" advisedly, because all the preliminary folding to get the shape makes the model bulky and difficult or even impossible to fold in practice.

http://rachel.ns.purchase.edu/~Jeanine/origami/oriback.htm

Extractions: Origami is the art of paper folding. By a sequence of folds, a flat piece of paper is turned into a stylized animal, flower, box, or other recognizable object, generally 3-dimensional and often with moving parts or serving a utilitarian purpose. The final object is called a 'model'. Origami is associated with Japan, but it is practiced all over the world. The classical models include the water bomb, crane, and flapping bird. In recent times unit or modular origami, in which geometric constructions are built up from so-called modules, has become popular. Origami is both a craft and an art. Origami as practiced in the United States and elsewhere, has developed a certain culture, largely influenced by Lillian Oppenheimer, Alice Gray, and Michael Shall who over time established Origami USA . In this culture, everyone is potentially a teacher as well as a student; a high value is placed on sharing. Similarly, care is taken to giving credit to creators, people who add variations to models, teachers, collectors, and people who write down directions and diagrams. It is to be noted that the recommended practice in origami circles goes beyond the letter of the law concerning intellectual property. Certain attributes of the nature of origami and this culture provide the potential for its use in teaching (and doing) mathematics. Creating an origami model involves following a procedure.

Extractions: You're at Home About Us Origami / East and West of Origami Paper Most of us will remember folding paper cups, salt cellars (we called them 'cootie' catchers or 'fortune tellers') and paper balloons as children in elementary school. There is more to origami than these simple models would lead us to believe. Origami comes from the Japanese words for folding, ori , and the Japanese word for paper, kami . When combined, kami becomes gami and the word is origami. It shares the same origin but has taken two distinct avenues of development since its creation. Those two avenues of origami have merged together in the twentieth century. There is more to origami today than just paper-folding. Origami has a long history in the east and west and a sophistication which is more artistic than a mere craft. The following is the story of the east and west in origami. The Basic Materials The Japanese learned about paper-making in the early seventh century. They gained their knowledge of paper from a Buddhist monks who came to Japan from China through Korea and the books that they brought. This started about 538 A.D. The Japanese began making paper of their own by about 610 A.D. It is believed that Dokyo, a Buddhist monk, brought knowledge of paper-making as well as painting and ink-making. He was even a doctor and became the chief physician to Empress Shotoku. The Eastern Avenue Figure 1: Flower wrapping resembling noshi wrapping The Muromachi period in Japan lasted from 1338 to 1573. The folding style of this period represented a persons place in society. Paper was now inexpensive enough to be used by everyone and origami became a means of social stratification. It was a period of military rule and two schools of origami existed. The samurai followed the Ise school while peasants and farmers followed the Ogasawara school. There has been 400 years of mothers teaching their children how to fold paper.

Extractions: David Mitchell's Origami Heaven Useful Rectangles and Folding Geometries This page introduces various rectangles that are of proven (or potential) use as starting shapes in modular origami. Whilst all folding geometries can be obtained from all rectangles, the optimum folding solution for a particular module will often be found by starting from the paper shape that most naturally yields the angles required. The Square The square is undoubtedly the most versatile starting shape in modular origami. This is not only because of its symmetry but because it easily yields angles that are useful in modelling many types of polyhedral forms. A method of making a square from any other rectangle is given in the FAQ The Silver Rectangle The Silver Rectangle (also known as the pure or DIN rectangle) has sides in the proportion of 1:sqrt2. Its natural folding geometry yields angles of 110 / 70 / 55 degrees. These angles are found in the structure of the tetrahedron, the cube and the cuboctahedron as well as in the many interesting forms known as rhombic polyhedra.

Extractions: Exploring Origami - Page 2 of 5 In Japan, legend says that a person who makes a thousand origami cranes will live a long life. The legend took on new meaning in 1955, when Sadako Sasaki (shown above and below), a twelve-year-old girl who was exposed to radiation during the bombing of Hiroshima, contracted leukemia. While in the hospital, she tried to fold 1,000 cranes but died before she could finish. Sadako's statue now stands in Hiroshima's Peace Memorial Park, where it is decorated every year with thousands of origami cranes, folded by children from around the world, as a symbol of peace. Click here for a larger image of Sadako Sasaki. Click here to visit www.sadako.com he art of paper folding, like the art of papermaking, began in China, but it spread to Japan by the sixth century A.D. Over the centuries, it became an integral part of Japanese culture. Paper butterflies symbolized the bride and groom at weddings; folding a thousand paper cranes became a traditional way to ensure a long and healthy life. Animals were an especially popular theme, as "folders" developed more and more ingenious ways to make a little diamond of folded paper sprout legs or wings - and even to make it float, hop, or fly. Even so, Japanese origami evolved very slowly. According to American origami expert Peter Engel, Japanese folders invented about 150 traditional origami figures in a millennium of folding.

Go get a ream, and let's waste it with idle mathematical diversions. It's time to learn the ins and outs of paper folding. People have been folding paper for centuries. Not long after paper was invented in China, the Chinese were folding it. In Japan it became the art of origami, first practiced only by the elite, and then by the masses as paper became cheap and abundant. The patterns used to fold square sheets into representational figures propagated as oral traditions for centuries, though only a few simple designs survived to the earliest printed works. The best known origami design is the crane, and in fact the oldest surviving book on origami is the Hiden Senbazuru Orikata (How to Fold One Thousand Cranes). The book begins with basic instructions for folding the origami crane. With beautiful calligraphy and illustrations, it then shows dozens of ways to fold many cranes from one sheet of paper. In these multi-crane folds, the sheet is cut into small squares which remain joined by thin strips at the corners. Then the dexterous artist folds the individual cranes without tearing the strips.

Extractions: home articles Origami , the Japanese name for the art of paper folding, comes from the Japanese verb oru (to fold) and the noun kami (paper). The word "origami" is now commonly used around the world. A finished origami figure is called a model , the method for folding a model is called a design , and drawn instructions for a model is called a set of diagrams . An origami artist is usually called a paperfolder The only requirement for origami is a piece of paper, making it one of the most accessible arts. Almost any paper may be used, but standard "origami paper" is thin, strong, and holds a crease very well. It is also usually white on one side and colored on the other side, and is cut into 15 cm squares (about 6 inches). Some origami artists also experiment with other materials, and have folded models out of cardboard, various types of cloth, wire mesh, sheet metal, and even sheets of pasta. The basic technique of origami is folding, and many complex folds have been developed. The simplest fold is the valley fold , where a flat piece of paper is folded towards the paperfolder. When this fold is unfolded, the crease line forms a valley shape. Closely related is the
