Easily Create Origami with Curved Folds and Surfaces Origami—making shapes only through folding—reveals a fascinating area of geometry woven with a variety of representations. The world of origami has progressed dramatically since the advent of computer programs to perform the necessary computations for origami design. 3D Origami Art presents the design methods underlying 3D creations derived from computation. It includes numerous photos and design drawings called crease patterns, which are available for download on the author’s website. Through the book’s clear figures and descriptions, readers can easily create geometric 3D structures out of a set of lines and curves drawn on a 2D plane. The author uses various shapes of sheets such as rectangles and regular polygons, instead of square paper, to create the origami. Many of the origami creations have a 3D structure composed of curved surfaces, and some of them have complicated forms. However, the background theory underlying all the creations is very simple. The author shows how different origami forms are designed from a common theory.

is a unique collection of papers illustrating the connections between origami and a wide range of fields. The papers compiled in this two-part set were presented at the 6th International Meeting on Origami Science, Mathematics and Education (10-13 August 2014, Tokyo, Japan). They display the creative melding of origami (or, more broadly, folding) with fields ranging from cell biology to space exploration, from education to kinematics, from abstract mathematical laws to the artistic and aesthetics of sculptural design. This two-part book contains papers accessible to a wide audience, including those interested in art, design, history, and education and researchers interested in the connections between origami and science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Part 2 focuses on the connections of origami to education and more applied areas of science: engineering, physics, architecture, industrial design, and other artistic fields that go well beyond the usual folded paper.

Wer hat die Null erfunden? Wie können imaginäre Zahlen helfen, dass reale Wolkenkratzer nicht umfallen? Wo treffen sich parallele Linien? Und wann haben Sie heute zuletzt abstrakte Algebra genutzt? (Doch, Sie haben.) Wie die Mathematik die moderne Welt erschaffen hat – eine illustrierte Geschichte der Mathematik für ein breites Publikum, von den Ursprüngen im Zweistromland bis zur Gegenwart Ian Stewarts spannende Geschichte der Mathematik führt uns von der frühen Hochkultur der Babylonier bis zu den letzten ungelösten Rätseln dieser Disziplin. In typisch Stewart'scher Manier, also unterhaltsam und zugleich fundiert, schildert und erklärt er die großen Meilensteine der Mathematik – von den ersten Zahlensystemen bis zur Chaostheorie – und geht der Frage nach, welche Auswirkungen sie auf die Gesellschaft hatten und wie sie den Alltag auf alle Zeit veränderten. Er bringt uns dabei auch die Geistesgrößen der Mathematik näher, von den Naturforschern und Denkern Babyloniens, Griechenlands und Ägyptens über Newton und Descartes bis zu Fermat, Babbage und Gödel. Ohne den Leser mit komplizierten Formeln zu erschrecken, macht er die Schlüsselkonzepte der Mathematik verständlich. Als anregender historischer Streifzug für den interessierten Laien steckt Meilensteine der Mathematik voller faszinierender Details und kurioser Anekdoten. Hundert Abbildungen und Diagramme beleuchten und erhellen ein Gebiet, das von vielen Menschen gefürchtet wird, das aber unsere heutige Welt entscheidend geprägt hat.

Origami5 continues in the excellent tradition of its four previous incarnations, documenting work presented at an extraordinary series of meetings that explored the connections between origami, mathematics, science, technology, education, and other academic fields. The fifth such meeting, 5OSME (July 13–17, 2010, Singapore Management University) followed the precedent previous meetings to explore the interdisciplinary connections between origami and the real world. This book begins with a section on origami history, art, and design. It is followed by sections on origami in education and origami science, engineering, and technology, and culminates with a section on origami mathematics—the pairing that inspired the original meeting. Within this one volume, you will find a broad selection of historical information, artists’ descriptions of their processes, various perspectives and approaches to the use of origami in education, mathematical tools for origami design, applications of folding in engineering and technology, as well as original and cutting-edge research on the mathematical underpinnings of origami.
