Description

This course focuses on the algorithms for analyzing and designing geometric foldings.

Topics include reconfiguration of foldable structures, linkages made from one-dimensional rods connected by hinges, folding two-dimensional paper (origami), and unfolding and folding three-dimensional polyhedra. Applications to architecture, robotics, manufacturing, and biology are also covered in this course.

Acknowledgments

Thanks to videographers Martin Demaine and Jayson Lynch.
