Mathematics Colloquium

A world from a sheet of paper
Tadashi Tokieda, William and Flora Hewlett Foundation Fellow, Cambridge/Stanford,

Staring from just a sheet of paper, by folding, stacking, crumpling,

tearing, we will explore a rich variety of sciences, from magic tricks

and geometry to elasticity and the traditional Japanese art of origami.

Much of the colloquium consists of actual table-top demos, which

you can try later with friends and family.
