DESCRIPTION:Robert From Flapping Birds to Space Telescopes: The Modern Scie
nce of Origami\n\nRecent years have witnessed a revolution in the developme
nt and application of mathematical techniques to origami\, the centuries- o
ld Japanese art of paper folding. This talk describes how origami changed i
n the 20th century from a simple craft to an art form of mind-blowing compl
exity and realism. Much of this development came from the discovery of the
mathematics of origami\, which\, though developed for artâ€™s sake\, has led
to some surprising practical applications. The algorithms and theorems of o
rigami design have shed light on long-standing mathematical questions and h
ave solved practical engineering problems. Learn how origami has enabled sa
fer airbags\, Brobdingnagian space telescopes\, and more.
