## 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.

Lecture 21 - HP Model & Interlocked Chains |

This lecture presents the hydrophobicity (HP) model for protein folding and optimization using parity cases. Interlocked 3D chains are presented through a table depicting different cases for combinations of open and closed chains.
