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).
