    Starting from just a sheet of paper, by folding, stacking, crumpling, sometimes tearing, we will explore a variety of phenomena, from a magic trick and geometry to elasticity and the traditional Japanese art of origami. Much of the talk consists of table-top demos, which you can try later with friends and family.

    So, take a sheet of paper …

    Tadashi Tokieda grew up as a painter in Japan and became a classical philologist in France before switching to mathematics (PhD, Princeton). Since last fall, he has been a professor of mathematics at Stanford University. For the 13 years prior, he was a director of studies in mathematics at Cambridge.

    No RSVP necessary. Refreshments in Thomas-Garrett Plaza immediately following the talk.
