6.849 Geometric Folding Algorithms: Linkages, Origami, Polyhedra
6.849 Geometric Folding Algorithms: Linkages, Origami, Polyhedra (Fall 2012, MIT OCW). Instructor: Professor Erik Demaine. This course focuses on the algorithms for analyzing and designing geometric foldings. Topics include reconfiguration of foldable structures, linkages made from one-dimensional rods connected by hinges, folding two-dimensional paper (origami), and unfolding and folding three-dimensional polyhedra. Applications to architecture, robotics, manufacturing, and biology are also covered in this course. (from ocw.mit.edu)
|Lecture 14 - Hinged Dissections|
This lecture introduces adorned chains and slender chains. Proofs involving these definitions, as well as locked polygons and hinged dissections, are presented.
|Class 14 - Hinged Dissections|
This class focuses on hinged dissections. Examples of hinged dissections and several built, reconfigurable applications are offered Pseudopolynomials, triangulation, and 3D dissections are then discussed.
