A World from a Sheet of Paper

Tadashi Tokieda, Professor of Mathematics, Stanford University, USA

Starting from just a sheet of paper, by folding, stacking, crumpling, sometimes tearing, we shall explore a diversity of phenomena, from magic tricks and geometry through elasticity and the traditional Japanese art of origami to medical devices and an ‘h-principle’.  Much of the show consists of table-top demonstrations, which you can try later with friends and family. 

So, take a sheet of paper. . .
