  • This page contains various and sundry links to web pages that combine origami with mathematical or scientific applications.
  • In the design of optical systems that incorporate multiple reflections of converging and diverging beams, it is possible to create useful simulations of the behavior of light using origami. In addition, a laser design actually performs origami on the light within its optical cavity.
  • How do you fold up a 100-meter diameter glass telescope lens to fit into a rocket? Using origami, of course.
  • The secret to simulating airbags turned out to depend on the origami molecule, a family of patterns originally developed by origami artists to build bigger and better insects.
  • Since 1989, there have been several highly successful international scientific conferences exploring the interactions between origami, mathematics, science, and (since 2001) education.
  • The Fourth International Conference on Origami in Science, Mathematics, and Education, was held at the California Institute of Technology in 2006.
  • A listing of all of the articles I've written or posted to OrigamiUSA's online magazine, The Fold.
  • Wolfram gives me some web-ness:

  • Website management: how does it work?
  • Ever wondered what the skeleton of the traditional tsuru looked like? Now you know.
