“The Mathematics of Paper”
Toen will not be talking about doing math problems on paper nor will he be talking about the economics of selling newspapers in this internet age. He will talk, instead, about some profound mathematics behind our everyday trouble with wrapping oddly-shaped gifts and making maps. What is his solution? KIRIGAMI! A variant of origami, where cutting is allowed as well as folding, kirigami allows us to solve these problems and much more. Demos will be given.
